Building Permanent Raised Beds with Hand Tools

Location: Groundswell Incubator Farm, 100 Rachel Carson Way, Ithaca
Bring weather appropriate clothes and a bag lunch! 
Cost: Sliding Scale, $5-$25, No one turned away for lack of funds
 
 
 
Sean Dembrosky of Edible Acres will lead a very hands on workshop showing participants strategies and techniques for taking ‘weedy’ areas of shrubs, brambles, tall grasses, young trees, etc., and converting it into permanent raised beds on contour that can be incredibly productive.  Using permaculture principles and only hand tools, a group of people can convert ‘waste’ spaces into amazing production that can grow soil rapidly, hold onto moisture in the landscape and avoid using costly, dangerous and noisy equipment to do the work.
 
 
 
 Join us as we take an abandoned slope and help guide it into the foundation of a food forest for the Groundswell Center Incubator Farm!
