Workparty at Kelda's Garden

  • Jun 9, 2014 · 2:30 PM
  • Polly's House

I garden based on permaculture principles and techniques, (seed-saving, polycultures, perennials, self-seeders, no till, limited irrigation). Now I have a young baby who likes to 'work' in the garden too, but is very distracting.

I don't have time to do it all + Others want to learn what I do= Regular workparties!

I picture weekly (or so) workparties first based at my home garden at Polly's house, and then all sorts of other gardens I'm part of that need some management/human touch. Please bring small garden tools if you have them (pruners, hori hori, etc). I'll provide water and some kind of snack.
We usually have a house dinner on Monday nights that you'd be welcome to join too.

    Hi everyone! Just a reminder that this workparty starts at 2:30 today, I have another commitment midday so we'll be starting a little later than usual. See you soon!

    When we get our mini-eco-village up and running, we'd love to get on this garden bee circuit! I'm thinking we'll probably want to get a sod cutter like you did in Sumner since most of the yard is turf now. Probably faster than sheet mulching and will get some variations in height too. I'd love any suggestions you have for how to make that go smoothly!

      That's what I remembered! I don't have much compost but was thinking of using Tagro and wood chips

      That works. Just have lots of it (8 inches) so it's less work later suppressing the grass. Or I suppose you could use cardboard first if you can only 2-3 inches of mulch per bed.
