Repost from @sonic_bloom_ - Announcing this year's permaculture action day hosted by @permacultureaction ! .
On the day SONIC BLOOM Festival begins, before the evening performances spark off the weekend, we will gather at District ONE Farms in nearby Walsenburg to take action for a brighter future. Music, hands-on projects, workshops, food, and community has been the best way to start Sonic Bloom for the last three years in a row; and this year we want to share it with you.
During last year’s action day we dug large rainwater catchment swales, planted trees and perennial edibles, painted a mural, built low-tunnel hoop houses over the garden beds, and installed a rainwater catchment tank.
This year, we’re expanding District ONE Farm’s rainwater harvesting and storing capacity, planting fruit and nut trees, and more. Come throw down your skills, energy, plants, and labor to make the community farm a thriving, productive model of the new just economy we’re stepping into.
District ONE Farms provides their produce to a pay-what-you-can, farm-to-table restaurant in downtown Walsenburg. We’ll enjoy a meal there together after working on projects at the farms and before heading in to Sonic Bloom to get down for the weekend.
Stay tuned for a schedule of music, workshops, and projects for the day; and write to us to get involved or contribute at Contact PermacultureAction.org
