We are sponsoring the first workday/workshop implementing the permaculture plan for the grounds surrounding the?Sustainable Living Resource Center?in Cottekill (Rosendale).? As you may know, the Center is already a model of green building and renewable energy.? The goal is?to have?the surrounding property complement this exemplary structure and help it fulfill its role as a living example of sustainability.
The property owner?will provide lunch and snacks.?
About 20 participants would be ideal, since that would give everyone lots of opportunities for working and for enjoying fellow workers.
This will be an excellent opportunity to get some hands-on permaculture experience?creating paths, patterned gardens, trellising, planting trees, and thinking how to use permaculture principles.? It will also be an excellent opportunity to work with interesting people and meet some of the people working on sustainability in the Kingston area.
