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.

  1. 1 tractor tires May 31, 2014 at 11:30 pm

    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.

Farm delivery! 👩🏻‍🌾 You may see our farm coordinator biking around Wolfville this summer and fall with a trailer full of produce. Yesterday it was used to transport our seedlings 🌱 from the K.C. Irving Center greenhouse down to the farm. See if you can spot our garden coordinator biking delicious veggie up to Wheelock Dining Hall this fall 🍂 🚴🏻‍♀️
We’ve been lucky with two good days of weather in a row. Fingers crossed for another one tomorrow! Today we rotated our compost piles and set up two new compost bins. These were graciously donated to the farm by Environmental Sustainability students Chelsey and Daniella! The soil is just dry enough to start planting out some of our seedlings. Today we transplanted swiss chard, cabbage, and kale! 🥬
Happy Sunday! It looks like we have some sunshine this coming week 🌤. This means our cabbage, kale and swiss chard will finally be transplanted into the garden! 🥬
