Blitz of the L-Lot: Permaculture in North Central!
May 28, 2021 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm EDT
We have a semi annual Blitz of the L lot, which is at the South End of the alley on Glen Street and is one of CCG Garden Mentor Christian Grigoraskos’ favorite places on the Sanctuary campus. With a bit of care each year, we have been ushering this once abandoned space into a beautiful and productive Food Forest, a very unique sort that is largely been dictated by what is already there and has come in naturally. Includes Plant Identification! Please bring gloves if you have them!
A message from Christian:
May you live in Wild times, with Wild Spaces.
Ecology capitalizes on disturbance (dissed-urbance) and when humans intervene with guided observance a paradise is born…so join us for our biannual Blitz of a patch of land We call the L lot because of its L shape and because of the deep Love we have for all our Botanical allies that inhabit it. Each growing season we give just a little bit more support to the plants we want to see grow while utilizing the surrounding biomass of support species that grow rampant in our climate offering their bodies to the cycle of soil life.
In this workshop we will cover many permaculture principles and practices such as:
- Paying attention
- Plant identification
- Succession planning
- Chop and drop mulching
- Pollarding and other radical pruning methods
- Picking up trash
- Staring at bees coming and going from their entrance
- Imagining the possibilities based on our observations
