LongGreenHouse launches its Spring Permaculture Series with a Seed Sowing Workshop Thursday, March 20.
Wassookeag children, UMaine students and community members will sow seeds and prepare a Four-Season unheated greenhouse, built by the Fall 07 Permaculture students, for spring planting.
We will also prepare and seed the cold frame, and indoor flats. During this time we’ll review some basic permaculture gardening tips and techniques including:
-plant guilds, patches, cold frames & swales
-pollinators & pest control
-soil block making & potting soil mixes
-sheet mulching, manuring & compost teas
We also hope to be viewing Vasia Markides’ new film, “Hidden in the Sand” which screened at Space Other Gallery
in Boston’s South End, on Friday, March 7th, 2008.
Workshops will be held roughly every two weeks through the spring semester: Mar 20, Ap 3, Ap 17, May 8.
