Sunday August 16th: Alex DeNicola “Ecological Gardening & The Principles of Permaculture Design”

We’re pleased to announce our 3rd workshop of the season.  This Sunday, August 16th, Alex DeNicola will be talking to us about “Ecological Gardening and the Principles of Permaculture Design.” Featured in Heliotrust’s Farmer-Mentor program (which was later released as a book entitled Twilight Meetings), DeNicola is a farmer with deep insight into the ways in which agriculture can become deeply engrained with local ecological process… the ways in which agriculture and culture alike can become more permenant, hence, permaculture.  If you would like to find out more about this field of inquiry simply follow this link to a well-known magazine:

We will be hosting this workshop at 1pm in BAC room 201 (the BAC is on the corner of Main and Highland in Wolfville) this Sunday the 16th. Come and share your thoughts with Alex DeNicola and the rest of us!   Admission is free or by donation.

    As a substitute of throwing absent discarded tires, folks
    could trade them with utilized tire companies.
    You’ve probably seen tires as bumpers around boat docks.
    This one is genuinely up to you to make a decision, but certainly,
    the larger sized your property is, the more difficult, and
    more expensive it will be to sustain.
