Urban Poultry Association of Texas is pleased to donate $1,500 of proceeds from the 2014 Funky Chicken Coop Tour to New Farm Institute (NFI) via a Permablitz organized by the Austin Permaculture Guild. The mission of New Farm Institute (NFI), a 501c3 nonprofit, is to educate, assist and inspire citizens and a new generation of sustainable farmers, with a focus on the urban fringe — an area defined as within 30 miles of medium to large cities.
It's getting to be that time of the year again when the permablitzes (our perennial food garden installations) begin. I'm really excited about our first blitz of the season being at Coyote Creek Farm where I have had the honor of helping to build two of the barns that house the hammer mill and pellet mil, a cow barn, and a couple of the houses used by staff.
This permablitz is also going to be our largest permablitz to date with the earthworks being done by Ken Tuck and his equipment operators Joe and Jessy. The equipment is scheduled to arrive next week at the farm.
We're at it again! This May 10-11th please join us at Eastside Memorial High School to help us teach the students there how to build a perennial food garden and learn how to do so yourself. This will be the first high school we have blitzed at and we are very excited about it!
Because of the hectic schedules of our organizers, we will be having a maintenance permablitz for April. This is necessary to check up on the gardens we have created and to add more cover crop seeds for the warm season.
Please come out to actively learn how to build a perennial food garden. This is a really excellent space to have a garden for many people to experience and learn from. Please come out and get your hands dirty!
The schedule of each blitz is generally as follows:
9am-9:45am - Introduction to the purpose of the Permablitz and description of the berm/swale system
