Are you interested in fostering a healthier ecosystem in your garden and helping to address climate breakdown? In permaculture, we look to the living world as our guide. Learn simple strategies that "work with nature" to add organic matter to the soil, sequester carbon, protect groundwater, promote biodiversity, and do less work.
Scaling back can nourish what is meaningful to us, rather than deprive us.
In the last few years, our garden has been growing fewer veggies. This summer, I charted the sun and shade at two-hour intervals during the day, roughly one month before the solstice and two months afterwards. In late August, our garden looked like a woodland with dappled sun. Most of the beds had four or two hours of sun. No wonder the tomatoes have not been looking happy.
When: July 19-21, 2019.
