For those who have been keeping up with our Permaculture transformation in the Hudson Community Garden, you will be pleased to note there is another morning in the garden to learn more of the principles!
Recently, the FCT, has had the pleasure of working with Lorraine Ciarallo from Canada, who is a Permaculture Designer, Consultant & Educator and obtained her Permaculture Design Certification (PDC) in 2009 and in December 2011, completed the Permaculture Internship Program at the Permaculture Research Institute of Australia.
Lorraine, has been volunteering her time at the Hudson Permaculture Garden for over a month and sharing her knowledge with us. We have been clearing the garden of bush while building mulch boomerangs for the trees to retain moisture in the soil, spreading coconut mulch, growing heirloom seedlings and surveying the land to determine contours for placement of swales and beds.
Join us on Saturday the 5th of May in the Little Edgehill garden from 7:30 am to 12:00 noon. Lorraine shows us how to determine contours to capture maximum moisture and develop swales and beds along the contour lines. Please bring picks, hoes and mattocks, water, snack, hat, sunblock and friends to share the work load.
For more information please contact Lani at 836-6189.
Looking forward to seeing you all in the garden to build and develop sustainable agriculture right here at home.
