Sierra Permaculture Guild meeting – 3/13 @ 3pm

Join the Sierra Permaculture Guild as we kick off the 2010 planting season with a special talk on spring garden planning by Seth Rosmarin.

Seth will cover:
– what to intially get into the ground
– succession planting over the following weeks
– companion plantings
– flower habitat
– how to have extended harvests
– soil amendments and biology
– till vs. no till considerations
– mulching
– compost and vermiculture
– pruning
– gopher elimination
– seed saving
– old fruit tree varieties
– perennial agriculture
– and pest managment.

Seth Rosmarin has been living and farming in the Sierra foothills for ten seasons. His passion lies in the diversity of food, diet and health. Growing, living and learning in a season specific climate has given him an appreciation for the gift of growing food and the knowledge of its potential.

Free and open to the public!

Anyone interested in permaculture, sustainable design, ecological agriculture, peak oil, relocalization and related topics is encouraged to attend and participate. Bring your questions, ideas, stories, and visions of how permaculture can help us bridge through the transition as we co-create sustinable homesteads, communities and livelihoods.
