Crop Mob - Cedar Hill Enrichment Center
Saturday, November 5, 2011 from 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM (EDT)
You might have heard a lot about permaculture recently but still aren't quite sure what it's all about. Join us back at Cedar Hill to find out hands-on with an introduction to working with the contours of the land to hold moisture, soil and nutrients without large-scale, expensive earthworks.
We'll be plowing and planting comfrey and companion plants as well as creating compost berms (water-harvesting contours in the soil). These are some pretty important skills to have given Georgia's propensity for drought these days. We'll also be creating natural dyes from Black Walnut hulls. Also, bring your jack o'lanterns for worm food if you don't have your own compost heap!
It's going to be a really exciting and valuable mob, but we're keeping it on the small side so that everyone can really get to know the basics of some permaculture principles. Plus, if you were at our last Cedar Hill mob, you know how well we get fed there - and in a dining room, no less! It's like we're fancy or something :-).
You won't want to miss this one, so sign up now. But if you can't make it, please be sure to take your name off the list so someone can have your spot - we know this one will have a long waiting list. Thanks!!
