Announcing a new Meetup for Vegetable Garden Adventures!
What: Permaculture Program & Discussion Group - Bernardsville Library
When: Wednesday, March 24,[masked]:00 PM
Bernardsville Public Library
1 Anderson Hill Road
Bernardsville, NJ 07924
Permaculture = Permanent Agriculture and Permanent Culture.
Learn how to use permaculture principles to design your Spring vegetable garden and regenerate New Jersey landscapes and communities.
We will share our experiences and insights on how first to observe nature; then design productive gardens and ecosystems; and then create cooperative and economically just social systems that form the resilient foundation for stability in our culture.
We will review the twelve permaculture design principles, bringing them alive with photos and examples from nature. We will also discuss soil stewardship and our role in protecting the "skin" of Mother Earth so that we can continue to grow food and sustain plant and animal life on this planet. We can all start by composting our food scraps at home and make a difference in our own backyards.
The program and discussion will be facilitated by Wanda Knapik and Paul Nick.
Wanda is the owner and founder of a Bernardsville-based business that creates organic vegetable gardens in backyards, schoolyards, and community gardens in suburban and urban settings across New Jersey. Her goal is to build a sustainable local food system and empower state residents to shift from just being consumers to being producers by growing their own food and composting their food scraps.
