Permaculture for Home and Garden
In this talk participants will learn Permaculture principles as applied in temperate homes and gardens. We will discuss beyond organic gardening, building with local natural materials, ecological lawn, meadow, stream and wetland care, orchards and forest gardens, composting, off-the-grid water systems, and domestic and wild animal management.
Bring questions about your garden and home and be prepared to learn about ideas that can improve your quality of life, simplify your needs, and increase your family time. By cooperating with ecological processes you create real abundance and diversity in your life.
Andrew Faust has been teaching about permaculture for nearly two decades, in rural settings along the East Coast and in Brooklyn, where he adapted his ideas to urban living through the Center for Bioregional Living. He has lived off the grid for eight years in West Virginia, where he designed and built a permaculture-inspired homestead including a 1,600 square foot straw-bale house.
The address is 24 Wardwell Ln. Directions: take route 212 E. towards Saugerties. We are the street after Plochman Lane, a left turn off of 212. We are the third house on the right, the one with all the firewood on the lawn. Please park on the street and bring food and dishes for a potluck.
**The hosts have asked that you bring plates, utensils and drinks and that your food is fully prepared and ready to eat.
Please note that we are asking for a $5-$10 donation at the door to be split between Andrew and The Woodstock NY Garden Share Group with NOONE being turned away.

We are the third house on the right, the one with all the firewood on the lawn. Please park on the street and bring food and dishes for a potluck. We will need either indoors or outdoors, depending on the weather.
I want to show everyone my irrigation system. I will have it hooked up by the time of the meeting, although it may not be actually running, due to cold weather. Regardless, everyone will be able to see exactly how it works. Everyone can also look at and admire my solar array.
