Workshop #5 – Save neighborhood trees and learn how to save yours!
Permaculture instructors and designers in our area will be on hand for a hands-on tree rescue and teaching day about permaculture principles such as “mulch basins” and “swales” using nature’s shapes to save your trees from the coming summer drought.
This is a great opportunity to learn how permaculture principles can be applied in your community and at home to help precious resources like trees thrive in our fluctuating climate.
HISTORY: A wonderful neighborhood beautification organization called Sustainable Neighborhoods worked with dozens of neighbors near 2222/Lamar to plant several trees that will shade the nearby sidewalk and bus stop. But, the vast median of poor soil is sucking the trees dry. Without proper earthworks to feed the soil and build up nutrients and microbes, the trees will die. They’re already suffering even though they’ve received supplemental water.
In this half-day workshop/community volunteer day you’ll:
- - Help save some community trees from drought
- - Learn permaculture techniques for long term tree care
- - Learn about the concept of “earthwork” and how it can change your world
- - Have some of your site specific questions answered by professionals
Location: 2222/Lamar intersection – park at the Texas DPS Headquarters
Date:Saturday, May 26th
Time: 8am – 1pm
Cost: Requested/Sliding Scale donation of $10 to help pay for materials.
