Guided Permaculture Tour

Perth Veggie Garden Tour

GUIDED PERMACULTURE TOUR @ 28 Church Street, Perth, 3pm & 4pm
Visit the semi-urban garden of two permaculture teachers on 1/5 of an acre of land in Perth.  This land and garden in year 2 of a permaculture design features: a young food forest, sheet-mulching, a hugelkultur bed, raised beds, a portable mini-hoop house, floating row covers, various trellises (a bean tent, a string trellis on the side of the garage, and climbing tomato structures with simple materials), outdoor compost, worm compost, and a black-walnut plant guild.  If you are interested in hearing about the permaculture design for this land, please join us at 3pm or 4pm for the "guided permaculture tour", which will include a description of the zones, sectors, the plant guilds and the "why" behind the design.
