Thinking Like an Ecosystem

first day in the greenhouse

We believe in working cooperatively as part of Nature.  This belief is at the core of permaculture design. Learn the basics of thinking like an ecosystem in our popular Introduction to Permaculture class on April 9th.

In March, join us for a two-day Land Regeneration workshop on ways to restore ecosystem health by applying the principles and techniques of disturbance-based forest management. We can expedite environmental restoration by increasing variability in forest structure and habitats. Learn ways to guide land toward health and biodiversity with thoughtfully chosen disturbance events. A wooded area with an eroded stream bed overgrown with ‘invasive’ plant species will be our classroom. Click here for more information or to register.

We started planting in the greenhouse this week! We’re getting ready for the Heirloom Plant Sale on Saturday, May 6 as well as growing plants for our CSA members. We still have shares available for pick up either at the Horn Farm as well as at Seventh & George near the intersection of routes 30 and 83.

Calling all wild food enthusiasts! Our monthly Foraging and 2017 Foraging Intensive classes start in March. Find out more and register here.
