Michael Judd says that if permies.com brings in $5000 to his kickstarter, then permies.com can decorate an entire page in his new book!
I'm not sure what we would put there just yet, but the opportunities for comedy are endless!

This Sunday, August 30th, from 2-5 pm, the Bullitt Reservation in Ashfield, MA will be holding the last of this summer's gardening workshops: Soil Fertility will be an in-depth look at the molecular basis of fertility, including such topics as mycorrhizal relationships, ramial chipped wood, compost, mulches, cover-crops and other strategies to manage soil health. We will delve into remineralization, how to use a soil analysis to make a custom blend of amendments for your soil, and how to manage fluctuations in fertility over time.

The workshop is free for members of the Trustees of Reservations, and $5 for non-members. It will happen RAIN OR SHINE, and take place at the Bullitt Reservation, 332 Bullitt Rd, Ashfield, MA 01330. There is no need to register, but call Emmet at 413 628-4485 x1 with any questions.

Following the workshop, there will also be a brief scything demonstration, along with a tutorial on sharpening, peening, blade repair and making your own scythe handle. If you want to bring your own scythe, that's great, and we can get a line of people mowing.
