Please join us for a few garden tours on Saturday August 21 from 10-2 and on Tuesday August 24 from 6-7:30pm. Attendance is free but registration is required so we can adequately plan logistics for an expected high turnout in a tight space. Register with The Resilience Hub for August 21 and register with MOFGA for August 24. Hillside gardens may be challenging for people with mobility issues. No dogs. Park on the side of the road or in the car park if you can find a spot. We are expecting high turnout and we will cycle small groups through the garden tour. If you miss a tour, stick around and we will repeat it.
We have been practicing permaculture design for clients since 2009 and began construction of our homestead in 2010. We are about 11 years into our co-evolutionary dance with this landscape and look forward to sharing our successes and failures. The aesthetic we are cultivating here is one of woodland ecosystem with a mix of trees and shrubs along with perennial meadow polycultures. Much of it is edible, medicinal or important for wildlife. It’s pretty much an edible jungle. We’re trying to demonstrate a vision of regenerative landscape management that takes us away from lawn and tillage agriculture and toward a perennial horticultural vision of hunting, gathering and gardening using the forest and other patterns in nature as our inspiration. Along the way the landscape has rewilded, and so have we to some degree. We’d love to tell you about it in unvarnished terms. See you then!
MOFGA’s Gather and Grow: Tour Jesse’s Permaculture Gardens
August 24 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Join us for a tour of a permaculture homestead designed and built by Jesse Watson of Midcoast Permaculture Design.
Jesse’s tour will highlight the joys of eating wild meadow plants, his pollinator gardens, water catchment systems and the aesthetic of woodland and meadow ecosystems that he evokes in his spaces. We’ll also take a look at his perennial forest garden and annual plantings.
This event is free but registration is required.
