I attended the Wisconsin Garden Expo for the first time last year. From a class I attended during the Expo, I wrote a post from my phone where I pretty much yelled at all my friends for not having told me about this AMAZING mid-winter event. I immediately decided I wanted to present at the event, and was encouraged to do so by several of my Madison Area Permaculture Guild buddies.
I sent a proposal in last autumn, and heard in December that my proposal had been accepted! I'm presenting twice, and invite YOU to join me at one of them.
TITLE: Use permaculture principles to design an urban orchard that stores water, reduces work and build community.
DESCRIPTION: Design an orchard on an urban lot using permaculture principles to catch and store massive amounts of water; obtain a bountiful yield from a diverse collection of fruit trees, bushes and herbs; add beauty; build community and reduce waste, work and energy consumption.
