Everything Gardens! Urban Permaculture Gardening
Learn the essentials for successfully growing edibles and native perennial wildflowers and perennials for our own personal use and as food and forage opportunities for pollinators and songbirds. Think you don't have enough space? Your balcony, rooftop, fire escape, windowsill, and community garden can all provide productive growing opportunities. You can also garden abandoned lots and neglected areas with seed balls which enable you to garden impossible to reach areas without having direct access. Seed balls, made from clay, compost, and a variety of seeds, can be thrown into these neglected areas and are quite effective. We will cover container gardening, sources for plants and seeds, organic fertilizers, soil mixes, and more. We can all help to create low maintenance, beautiful, and diverse native gardens wherever we are in the NYC area.
Remember: EVERYTHING GARDENS!
Brooklyn Permaculture Meetup
Every Third Friday at The Commons
$5 Suggested donation - no one turned away!
Permaculture is a whole systems design science that is positively changing the way people think and interact with Earth. Turn problems into solutions by joining us in the discussion, design and implementation of projects in and around Brooklyn and the surrounding region. We are looking to create an active group of motivated beings that want to contribute to all the positive change that is happening in our region and the world. This Meetup will be lead by Andrew Faust and occasional visiting friends. Andrew is director at Center for Bioregional Living which since 2007 has been training permaculture designers in NYC and starting June 1st 2012 at their rural campus in Ellenville, NY. A certificate in Permaculture Design is very helpful but not necessary. Click HERE to join Brooklyn Permaculture Meetup.
