SATURDAY, AUGUST 15 FROM 10-12:30 (pre-registration required, see below)
Hilltown Tree & Garden presents “Practical Permaculture”, a fund-raiser for Meekins Library at Hilltown Tree & Garden, Pynchon Rd. Chesterfield, MA 01012
Join certified arborist, horticulturist and landscape designer Jim McSweeney for an in-depth look at his own sustainable landscape in Chesterfield, MA. On 2 acres, he (and his family) have created: a passive solar home, barn, (goats, horses, rabbits, ducks, chickens, pigs & cats) honey bees, orchard, small fruits, vegetables, herbs, ornamental flowering trees, lawn, root cellar, shade trees, wetlands, tall grass wildflower meadows, cutting flowers, solar panels, greenhouse, woodshed, septic system, well, driveway, etc. This 2 1/2 hr. workshop will touch on all aspects of the micro farm based off of 15 years of trial and error. You will take away from this workshop practical approaches to self-sufficiency that any person anywhere can apply.
