May Permaculture Meeting

Large acreage study group

Author: Annie M

 

The May meeting will be held Sunday the 18th (which is one week earlier than our normally scheduled meeting).  We need some help planting raspberries.  If time and weather permit we'll also be laying black plastic to sterilize some soil.

We'll be passing out some ollas I'm making.  Here's a YouTube link describing the use of ollas as a water saving tool.  The ollas I'm making are made of terra cotta clay and are made on the potter's wheel.  No glue is used. (see you tube link).

Please bring something to share at our monthly potluck.  We'll provide beverages.

Join us May 18th at our home: 12621 E Valleyway, Spokane Valley Wa 99216
