Groundbreaking at the Edgewood Gardens

Our Fertile Earth is breaking ground at their Edgewood Gardens site this Saturday. We've cleared sod from the paths, we'll be digging them out and layering them with mulch, planting some cover crops, taking some soil samples, and generally getting the ball rolling on this public permaculture food park.

We'll have water and some light refreshments; bring gloves and a shovel, hat and sunscreen if you like. Come meet the residents at the Florida Christian Apartments and the Sundale Manor and help us spread the word about permaculture.

(sorry for the late notice! We'll do better next time!)

    I just saw this event this morning; I may be a couple minutes late. Nor do I own gloves or a shovel! Still, I will pop by to see if there's anything I can do to help. I love that you're doing this for the senior residents at those apartments!

    If anyone can spare some cardboard & or cover crop seeds we could use them! ^_^

    Excited to maybe help out and learn first-hand how to set up a self sustaining food garden!

    This is one of our first big projects as a group. Please get involved. We're going to show Jacksonville what permaculture can do. This program involves giving older, retired people who are all on medications, good, healthy food. Everyone will learn how this is done first-hand! Be a part of the cure!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
