Event description

Description

Sustainable Solano's Sustainable Backyard Program introduces the concept and practice of permaculture to Solano County. Permaculture is a sustainable design system stressing the harmonious interrelationship of humans, plants, animals and the Earth. The core of permaculture is design and the working relationships and connections between all living things.

This is Day 2 of 2 of a public, hands-on installation workshop series at "Monarch Rose" demonstration food forest garden. This is an opportunity to see a dead, barren front lawn transformed into a customized food forest based on permaculture design principles.

Topics Covered:

Planting a community of plants with multiple functions that support a healthy, diverse ecosystem.

Surface drip irrigation installation: Adding irrigation for young plants and water conservation.

Covering the food forest with free woodchips (mulch) to prevent water evaporation and improve soil health.

This installation includes a short lecture from a sustainable landscape expert and hands-on experience on how to build a food forest. A vegetarian lunch will be provided by the homeowner. Please bring hats, gloves, reusable water bottle and sunblock.

*Sponsored by the Solano County Water Agency.
