Edible landscaping is a rapidly spreading idea around the world, with many people switching from ornamentals to edibles: plants that give back by not only looking good, but also providing fresh, delicious produce to consume. The best motto: EAT YOUR YARD!
Join us for an engaging presentation by Jenn Stotland about permaculture and edible landscaping, where we will learn easy ways to convert lawns into garden space for growing food. We will cover the basics of permaculture and edible landscaping – all aspects of increasing the productive capacity of your home during times of rapidly rising food costs.
Following the library presentation, we will head out for a field trip-Permablitz to a nearby St Margarets Bay resident who is in the process of such lawn conversion. This is your chance to get your hands in the soil as we will be learning by doing. Refreshments will be provided.
This two-part event will be family friendly and is open to all. The address for the on-site visit will be provided at the library event to those in attendance. If you are unable to attend the library presentation but want to come by the house, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
