Winter Work Party: Swan Creek Park Food Forest

We had a great turnout at our work party on December 15th! We spread a large pile of mulch and removed an equally large pile of garbage from the site. Ulysses led a group who surveyed the site, mapping out all existing large trees, which will be extremely helpful in producing accurate design plans for the food forest.

We've had some special requests for an afternoon work party from our lovely food forest contributors who have Sunday morning obligations or are otherwise in repose. Come join us!

Help contribute to this project at our winter work party! Be dressed for the weather and bring your own gloves, and water bottle. Feel free to show up and bring a friend! 

Permaculture design creates abundant, low-maintenance, deliciously edible and self-renewing gardens. Come learn techniques and processes that Permaculture uses as it applies to Swan Creek Park Food Forest. Not only will your contributions guide the food forest’s implementation, you’ll also learn skills that are easily transferred to other garden projects at home.

    I'm sorry to miss this event. We'll be out of town, but I am super appreciative of the lead time to plan. I'll try to make February the priority, if you can list that date asap.
