Food Forest Workshop not one to miss!!

Just a friendly reminder that this weekend at the Acadia Farm we are hosting a workshop on Food Forest Design (info attached, and below).  Thank you to those who have responded and already signed up! We’re looking forward to meeting you. 

Additional information to note: 
  • Rain date: Sunday July 8th, same time and place.  An email will be sent out if the workshop is moved to Sunday. 
  • There is likely going to be a “work party” after the workshop to continue planting, if necessary. This may be a good opportunity to stick around and ask Graham more questions, get more practice with the concepts, etc.  If you plan to stay, bring a hearty snack. We’ll have  a quick break with refreshments, but not a meal, for you.  

Food Forest Design Theory and Hands-On Workshop

Food forests are just one technique used by permaculture gardeners around the world to create productive, edible landscapes that require minimal maintenance, often replacing lawns or otherwise unused, space.

When:  Saturday, July 7th, 2012 1:00pm –4:00pm (with potential work party afterwards)

Where: The Acadia Community Farm (www.acadiafarm.org for directions and info)

Why: Because Permaculture Design is going to transform you into a gardener of the future.

    Shrink wrap – is widely used in shipping to keep a
    load on a pallet together as one unit and not to allow it to fall apart or items disappear from shipment.
    Aside from flaking, another problem with ordinary kitchenware is
    their vulnerability to scratches, which are inevitable, considering the amount
    of friction cooking utensils are subjected to.
    Then one goes further West towards Aix-en-Provence and finds a mix of
    home accessories between the South and Centre of the Provence.
    All of the displays — carefully thought out — are dizzying; you just don’t know where to look first.

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! 🥬
