Take a peek at permaculture Saturday

The Foods and Resources Society is hosting an afternoon permaculture workshop in Rock Creek this Saturday.

The West Boundary Sustainable Foods and Resources Society (FAR) is bringing permaculture design consultant Allisa Bennett in from Kelowna this Saturday to present: A Peek At Permaculture.

According to their poster Permaculture uses a set of practical design principles to get the most energy out of a system with the least input from us.

The event will take place at the Rock Creek Health Center this Saturday, July 26 from 2 – 4 p.m.

They promise a light snack and great conversation.

The event is made possible by a New Horizons Grant for Seniors.

Last Friday afternoon FAR did a lasagne gardening demonstration at the garden at St Jude’s in Greenwood.

FAR president Leda Fair told the Times that all the planting boxes and materials came from the “Red School House” community garden project in Rock Creek. “We had to give up on that one for this year, because we ran into difficulties securing water for the garden.”

“So this is in a sense – one community in the West Boundary is helping another and the efforts of all involved are not lost.” FAR can be found on Facebook @ FAR Society or you can contact Erika Tafel 250-528-1000.
