Justin Marlin and Loretta Buckner are hosting these workshops * FAMILY REUNIONS and GARDEN TOURS, where we'll be exploring some permaculture planting techniques and natural building skills!
*[Code Enforcement says that we cannot hold 'classes' at 'Casa Seranita', so future workshops will be held elsewhere in the future, and all other gatherings will be garden tours or family reunions!]
1-3pm Intro to Permaculture: a FREE, interactive learning experience proven to increase your understanding of permaculture exponentially! (This course counts toward your Permaculture Design Certificate 72 hours, if you should pursue professional certification through the Tampa Bay Permaculture Guild.)
3-4pm Do-It-Yourself Wicking Worm Bed demo and hands-on (There is a suggested donation of $10 per person, if you can.) This workshop, created for a convergence of teachers from around the world in Nashville at "Growing Community Resilience", will demonstrate how to Spring into growing with an easy as 1-2-3 Mini Grow Bed.
