Announcing a new Meetup for Northshore Permaculture Meetup Group!
What: Food Forests in Celebration of Arbor Day
When: April 25,[masked]:00 PM
Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
Meetup Description: Please join us for a brief intro to Food Forests in honor of Arbor Day! This is a good time to plant container-grown fruit and nut bearing shrubs. It's also a good time to plan for what you want to plant in the Fall.
Here's the loose agenda:
1:00- We'll meet and greet each other and start a discussion on Food Forests.
1:15- Go out to the muddy garden and observe soil strata in planting holes and talk about soil amendments for various plants.
1:45- Plant a shrub or two and learn how to get them properly established in the hole.
2:30- Walk about and discuss what might thrive in different locations: shady, damp, dry and small areas etc. We'll also observe what the Meadow is growing without any help from us.
3:00- Wrap up and maybe take an herb home to plant!
Wear appropriate shoes- it's bound to be muddy in April.
Bring a snack or beverage to share.
Bring some questions specific to your place.
Bring your kids- they usually love mud and plants!
