What’s Happening this Month:
CPG EDUCATION: (Always free and open to the public)
We will be starting our cycle of educational topics again beginning with the Ethics and Principles.
PERMACULTURE ETHICS, PRINCIPLES, GOALS and BASE MAPS:
>>What the ethics and principles mean and their practical application in our homes and properties (based on Holmgren principles with Mollison principles discussed).
>>How to set achievable goals for you, your family and property.
>>Basics of creating a base map of your property.
We would LOVE for the folks who joined us for these sessions the last few years to come again and share with the group what they have learned/applied over the last year!
WHAT TO BRING:
** Please bring a small dish to share as well as your own dishes, utensils and cup for the POTLUCK. There are limited dishes available in the library so please remember to bring your own if you can. If you do use library dishes we ask that you wash them when you are done.
