Have you ever wondered what the gardens of an Indigenous family living in one place for generations growing their food, beverages, medicines and some other household items would be like if combined with applications of modern scientific knowledge, horticulture tools and technologies also for sustainable living in a place? Well, not only is there one very huge garden like this that has produced crops for a thousand years straight--in Morocco--but now there is a whole body of knowledge and philosophy on this that has it own schools, many texts, and locations where it is being practiced in the US and elsewhere. It is called permaculture.
Here in Hayfork there is a young woman, Amanda Macon, who has studied permaculture and is passionate to share it. On Tuesday, February 18th at 7:00 pm at Northern Delights Coffeehouse in Hayfork, Amanda will discuss two of permaculture’s essential basic components: soil and water. Both topics are especially important THIS year. These are old familiar ones—basics of our own lives and bodies, as a matter of fact. But Amanda has new useful insights and techniques about water harvesting, preservation and much, much more. So come connect anew to these faithful standbys of life itself. This is a free event and all are encouraged to attend.
