February Permaculture Exchange
February 12, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFREE
We are excited to host the February Permaculture Exchange Tuesday, February 12th from 7-9pm. Our 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. If you are a local vendor and would like to participate in the event, please contact Jeff Trapani for information.
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 and seeds 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.
This month we’re featuring two classes, with a break in between, followed by the raffle.
