John Bunker is inviting members of our permaculture group to join in this workshop/work party event at the emerging Maine Heritage Orchard in Unity. This is a great example of earth repair, turning a really tough site into a beautiful, fertile forest of food over several years' time.

Passing on the info here:

Learn how to fall-fertilize soil in preparation for next year’s spring fruit tree planting.

During the day, we will prepare 125 individual apple tree sites for planting in April 2014.
Each spot will receive rock powders, soil amendments and compost.
Come for an hour or two, or come all day.Lunch provided for all attendees.
We’ll teach you how!
What to bring: Wheelbarrows, buckets and shovels
Where to find us: At the new Maine Heritage Orchard just north of the MOFGA Education Center and the Fairgrounds on the Lee Crosby Road in Unity. Look for the signs, we’re right along the road.
