Edible Scosystem Teaching Garden Spring Planting Weekend
Join garden designer and permaculture expert Dave Jacke and his team in our Edible Ecosystem Teaching Garden for an informative walk and talk as well as two hands-on days. Learn skills you can use in establishing your own forest garden while you help us with spring cleanup and planting tasks. Work with us for as much of the day as you like on either or both of the "Big Push" days, even if you miss the Thursday talk.
Pre-registration is required. To register, call 781-283-3094 or email email@example.com.
