Breaking ground on Poland,Maine's first Community Garden where Permaculture workshops will be free to the Community!
We are helping to start Poland,Maine's first Community Garden. Throughout the build out and into late Fall, we will hold free Permaculture skill-shares to the entire community.Permaculture is a theory of ecological design which attempts to develop sustainable human settlements and agricultural systems modeled from natural ecosystems. Our skill shares include; Soil Building/Sheet Mulching, Herb and Veggie( annual and perennial) garden planning,Season Extension,Natural Building, Composting, Rainwater/greywater, Plant Deterrents and Beneficials, Polycultures, Mycology, Holistic Healing, Food Preservation (canning,lactofermentation,drying, root cellars), Seed Saving,Fruit Tree pruning, Passive building, Solar ovens and Dehydrators, and Backyard Livestock. Our Community Garden start-up list includes; compost for beds, lumber for raised beds and a fence, a tool shed( and tools), rainwater catchment(cisterns and gutters), and cold frame materials.
By offering free and equal access of this wealth of information to everyone in the community, we eliminate educational cost factors that usually create economic barriers for individuals and give the community the tools to re-localize, fostering community engagement and food security. We are about building resilient communities and giving them the tools to face the future impact of peak natural resources, climate change and economic instability. Resilient Roots is a project of David Homa and Gretchen Voight who homestead in Otisfield,Maine.
