This spring the Self Reliant 4-H Club of Lincoln County will start a 7,500 square feet garden using some the latest permaculture techniques in an effort to develop a LocalOrganicSustainable Food System.
The Project is being funded by a grant from Oregon State University. The Organic Sustainable Food Project will be in Toledo Oregon, at the old community garden west of the skate board park.
Techniques to be used to develop an Organic Sustainable Food Supply:
EarthBarrels .... a patio self wicking container gardening system
EarthBeds ....raised self wicking beds with cloches
