Small Middle School Permablitz
The spread of perennial forest gardens continues!
If you missed the last one, this is your big chance to make a Permablitz in 2014! This is our last blitz of the year and is on theweekend after Thanksgiving, December 6-7 and goes from 9am-5pm each day. It will benefit Clint Small Middle School located at 4801 Monterey Oaks Blvd, Austin, Texas 78749. Breakfast and lunch will be provided both days.
We will be creating a small berm and swale system (earthworks garden) that will be about 60ft in length. Our team of volunteers (that means you!) will then get to plant it with native and cultivated fruit and nut trees, nitrogen fixing farmer's trees, perennial plants and food crops, annual food crops, and cover crops. We will also be installing a drip irrigation system to ensure the health of these trees.
Expect a talk about Permablitzes and permaculture design on Saturday morning around 10am by Kirby Fry.
This site already has many projects that the students currently benefit from including a chicken coop, labyrinth, raised garden beds, and a large greenhouse. I'm so excited we are building a learning space for a permaculture style perennial food garden here!
