Designing the Ecology of your Yard
Permaculturist Billy Kirst will share how his family has turned their yard into a virtual “food factory,” utilizing principles of natural systems that allow efficient use of resources, without chemical inputs. Meet at the Northside Community Center for an intro to the methods used, and then tour his amazing garden nearby.
“Cool and Green” Bike Ideas
Bring your folding bikes, electric bikes, cargo carriers, bad weather gear, etc.—anything you’ve rigged up or purchased to make you bike more useful for getting you and your stuff where you need to go! Show what you’ve got and/or just ask questions—we’ll learn together on the road to more sustainable transport. Meet on the grounds outside the Northside Community Center.
~ 6:30 PM POTLUCK ~
Bring a dish to pass & washable plate/cup/fork
~ 6-8:00 PM LIVE MUSIC: “The Switchbacks”! ~
