April 12 Crop Mob at the GEOS Eco-Community Development
Saturday, April 12, 2014 from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM (MDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The GEOS Development is a planned community like no other in Denver. Sustainability and eco-housing enthusiasts in particular will want to be on board for this mob. Billed as Colorado’s first ‘geosolar’ development, this new eco-community is an experiment in radical sustainability, featuring net-zero energy homes and native landscaping with a focus on the health and well being of its inhabitants and the natural systems that support them. More about the development here. In alignment with the principles this community espouses, we’ll be partnering with several of the future homeowners to create a large sheet mulched gardening area. Sheet mulching (aka lasagna gardening) is a permaculture no-till technique that builds soil from the ground up via layers of organic materials. This will be the largest scale sheet mulch project that Denver Crop Mob has yet undertaken. Hope you can join us for helping to establish a proper foundation for this promising eco-community!
Note that we will be offering only a limited number of tickets, so this is one you will want to jump on quickly!
