Verge Permaculture Open Yard – August 15

August 15, 2019 @ 6:00 am - 8:30 pm

- $25

What does Permaculture look like in real life?
We’ve been transforming our inner-city Calgary home into a permaculture demo site since 2009, and are thrilled to show you what we’ve done!

You’ll see and learn about…

* Core permaculture principles and strategies for energy efficiency, reducing water use, cycling nutrients, and growing food.
* A thriving food forest complete with fruit trees, bushes and tons of edible/medicinal perennials
* Passive solar greenhouse with rocket mass heater
* Water harvesting systems
* Energy-efficient house retrofits
* Composting systems
* A handmade cob oven
* A solar-powered water heater
* Mega-productive veggie gardens (with wicking beds and swales!)
and much much more!
