We will celebrate International Permaculture Day in May… a day of celebration showcasing permaculture around the world.
It’s an opportunity to experience permaculture and meet its practitioners. Visitors can see these myriad initiatives, ask questions and decide for themselves whether the permaculture design system has relevance to the challenges we face and to creating communities that are resilient. This year we will have a tour and plant sale and swap for International Permaculture Day Friday May 2nd 2021.
I will share with you an overview of what Permaculture is and some of the strategies used to implement it on your land. Ethics, concepts, strategies and themes of design will form a basis of understanding of how to partner with natural systems to create a resilient abundant regenerative system. Questions and answer session will follow the tour.
To further develop the connection between the farm and the community we are offering these tours. Tours are a great way to learn and visit the farm and pick up some permaculture food at the same time. See first hand what it takes to turn a landscape into a productive, vibrant, resilient, regenerative system. We will show you what makes Permaculture and Biodynamic farming systems thrive in food abundance at the same time as we regenerate the land, create habitat, clean and store water and build soil!
Tours generally cover land, water, nutrient, biomass and animal management systems. Nursery Plant sales and more. This may be altered according to people on the tours interest and questions.
Permaculture Round Table:
After the tour we invite interested people to stay for an informal discussion. How can we move Permaculture forward here in Whatcom county. How can we as a community form guilds of different skill sets, aid in promoting permaculture related events and work within our community to install permaculture systems such as food forests, lending libraries, speakers forum and cooperative nurseries. Come bring your idea to share!
There will also be plants available at a discount at our nursery for your Spring planting projects.
For everyones safety wear masks and endeavor to physical distance during the event.
This is a free or donations accepted event, limited to 20 people so sign up early on our website.
