Urban Agri/Perm Culture - Growing food for your family.

*** IMPORTANT *** PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE WILL BE A VERY SMALL DOCUMENTARY FILM CREW AT THIS MEETUP THEY ARE MAKING A RESPONSIBLE FILM ABOUT THE NEW MOVEMENT OF FOLKS INTERESTED IN BASIC SURVIVALISM. IF THIS MAKES YOU UNCOMFORTABLE, THEN PLEASE CONSIDER SITTING THIS ONE OUT. This meetup will be covering a variety of methods used for long term sustainability keeping in mind the concepts of limited space, off the grid options, stealth & guerrilla gardening mindset . We will focus on : Square foot/container gardening techniques Hydroponic growing basics Nutrient dense, easy to grow, easy to hide fruit and veggie choices Sprouting jars Natural pest controls Composting/recycling waste Vermiculture ( having worms work for you) Aquaculture ( raising fish for food) Chickens for eggs Goats for milk and meat Rabbits for meat and fur As always, our presenters will be knowledgeable and easy to understand. They will offer this information and answer your questions to the very best of their abilities. Of course every detail and eventuality of these topics cannot be explored in such a short time frame but we will give you a great leg up toward your goal of self sufficient living in a grid dependent culture. If you have a particular question that you want answered or if your experience would make you an asset in the teaching of these skills, please contact me ASAP so that you can be factored into the planning of the meetup. We will have a good time to be sure, however you should bear in mind that Liberty Land is a small park that does not have restrooms ( there are some nearby) and you may wish to bring a blanket or chair out with you. We are really looking forward to this event, we hope to see you there !

    That was amazing! Mellisa from the Eastern Pa Permaculture Guild gave terrific breakdown of the principles for planting and tending in any sized space so that it can be user/plant/planet friendly. Her visual aids were great.
    Joy, also with the guild spoke briefly about worm boxes for composting and what she has found helpful in her endeavors. Trebs (Tree-bs) had the group enthralled with her approaches to self sufficiency. She covered tips and tricks for beginners and experts alike. Her farm fresh eggs/meats/plants/soaps and homespun yarn were a big hit with many in the group as well. She had many laughing as she explained her approach to guerrilla gardening.

    The group as a whole was very pleasant and positive. The park was a wonderful setting at this time of year. There were many interesting conversations going on for hours afterward.
    I am grateful to you all.

    The Growing Food For Your Family was a great meet up. I thought I would have to do a lot of digging and plowing. I'll be using the methods presented at the meeting. I can't wait to grow my first bag of potatoes. I'll let you know how it turns out. :-)

    This meeting was low-tech. There was a lot covered. I hope that in the future a single topic can be the focus of an indepth presentation. The presenters were very knowledgable and appeared to practice the science they spoke about.

    A great event with much needed info. Love the multi colored eggs. I'm excited and ready to get to work on my garden. Thanks Fernando for your generous, giving nature. Worms, chickens, lady bugs oh my! Loved the women presenters and their devotion to sharing knowledge.
