Berea Permaculture Action Day 3

August 30 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

Free

Micah Wiles of Cedar Creek Farm presenting on caring for trees.

Alright y’all, we’re back for the LAST installment of the 2017 Berea Permaculture Action Series! Join us the day after the Friends of Old Timey Music concert in Old Town Berea for a day full of permaculture and nature-based workshops, skillshares and hands-on activities taking place at Glades Community Garden (530 Glades Rd, Berea, KY), FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!

Glades Community Garden is a project started by a group of families in a low-income housing community in Berea who were looking to be more self-sustaining and to create economic opportunity. The garden has expanded in the year since its inception to include CSA, sales to the Grow Appalachia Summer Feeding Project, and educational opportunities for kids. We are so excited to have the opportunity to contribute to the long-term goals and visions of this amazing community garden!

This will be day three of a three day series, each day focusing on different projects at the garden site, intended to be both experiential and educational!

Activities will include but are not limited to:

-PLANT FOOD FOREST DEMONSTRATION SITE
-WINTERIZE RAISED BEDS
-PRUNING/PROPOGATING BLACKBERRIES
-TUCK IN GARDEN BEDS

We’ll get as much done as we can – we need you to make it all happen! ALL PROJECTS BEGIN AROUND 10 AM AND ARE ONGOING THROUGHOUT THE DAY!

-SKILLSHARES, WORKSHOPS AND LIVE MUSIC

-WINTERIZING RAISED BEDS
-HOMEMADE CIDER PRESS!
-SEASON EXTENSION
-END OF SEASON TOOL CARE

FOOD: If you can, please bring a dish to share. This is a community event and food will be provided by the people for the people in the form of a rolling potluck. Please bring your own dish and eating utensils so we can a) avoid having tons of dishes to do afterwards and b) avoid contributing unnecessarily to the waste stream!

Please bring a water bottle to stay hydrated throughout the day.

MUSIC: There will be local musicians playing throughout the day. If you would like to contribute music, poetry, spoken word or art, please contact Leah (details above).

We’re looking forward to having the following talented artists perform! Stay tuned for the schedule :
