Whatcom Permaculture Meet-up, March 31 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm
A Free gathering time for People interested in Permaculture from Whatcom County to come together and discuss ideas.
Here are some ideas for topics to discuss at this month’s gathering.
This month’s meet up will be hosted by… Julie and Julian, 3116 Pinewood Ave.
We invite the Whatcom Permaculture group to visit our home in the Birchwood neighborhood. We just moved onto this ⅓ acre property in July and are in the early stages of design and planning. In this gathering, we would like to share our ideas and vision for how we want to transform the property, but we are especially eager to get an outside perspective from others with more experience or those at a similar stage as we are. Ultimately, we would like to convert what is mostly lawn into a food forest of mostly perennials (but also some annuals mixed in).
In line with “getting to know your property,” we both have expertise in animal biology (especially birds and insects), and could also hold a skill share in biodiversity monitoring if people are interested. Over the long term, we are interested in monitoring how biodiversity (i.e. the number of different species and their abundance) changes over the years as we build out the property.
