Additional Information and Directions
A permaculture design of our future farm is being implemented in Lovettsville, VA. This 6.5 acre property is at the foothills of Short Hill Mountain and is former pastures and vineyards. Over the next several years it will be transformed into a location for a market garden, food forest, and a place of study for regenerative design and development.
When you arrive at 1 pm we will use the pocket sight level and a transit to confirm the layout of the swales. We will use a rented tractor with excavating arm to move some soil and construct swales and berms. Then we will stabilize the swales with various seed varieties and straw. Finally, we will start on the planting of 75 fruit trees and install simple cages to protect from grazing deer. We are building community around regenerating and preserving our land, any support you would be willing to provide on this day would be greatly appreciated.
I will be at the property bright and early to get things started. If you want to come at a different time, let me know. I will provide additional directions to those who can make it out. Contact me by phone or email below if you would like to join us. Thanks!
