Committed to supporting community actions to build local sustainable private and community gardens using Permaculture principles tailored for the Spokane Area. It is open to all members to share information on Events, Plant Profiles, Articles and links to other websites. In addition we hope to provide forums and events for professional Farmers, not-for profit and government organizations interested in learning about and integrating sustainable Permaculture design principles in our area. Permaculture is not just about sustainable gardening... it is about sustainable living.

About 20 folks attended. It was cold, sometimes windy. The sun poked out for brief periods, much appreciated. The fire helped.

Friends of Polly Judd Park (1802 W 14th St, Spokane) are moving ahead to install a combination community garden and food forest. This biochar workshop is in support of that intent. Build a fire and they will come.
