We are excited to host the July Permaculture Exchange on Tuesday, July 10th from 7-9pm. Our skillshare classes feature local experts covering a range of topics such as cooking, plant tips, and overall well-being. Our goal is to hold a gathering space for the exchange of skills, knowledge, food and homemade products that meet the needs of the permaculture community while reflecting our core ethics and values.
The event is FREE with a suggested $5 donation to cover facility costs and class materials.
We will also have our $1 Plant Raffle at the end of the night with many rare perennial plants that you cannot find in a garden store. If you have plants or locally made goods you would like to add to the raffle table, please bring them along.
