This Sunday (3/29) we will be hosting a permablitz (aka a volunteer work party). It will be a food forest planting party at the home of Ke and Louis Kucinski in Renton WA. This will be a wonderful opportunity to meet others in the area and share and learn about what people are doing to create better lives for themselves and others.
The Kucinski's will be providing a light breakfast and lunch for folks who want to help them plant their future permaculture orchard. We will plant a range of species, from an autumn olive/seaberry/alder/siberian pea shrub windbreak, to the main fruiting species of fig, jujube, mulberry, persimmon, cherry, asian pear, mayhaw and paw paw.
The volunteer work party will begin at 9am with breakfast. We will then discuss the food forest design, site concerns, use and benefits of hugelkulturs and suntraps, fungi for soil remediation and plant health, and guild planting (what we are doing, where, and why). After this discussion we will begin planting.
Everyone is welcome! There are also goats on the property
Rain is possible so please come prepared with waterproof boots and rain gear. If you have a shovel or a pick-mattock please bring it (with your name on it somewhere!) Gloves also if you want them.
