Permaculture Food: Grow & Preserve

20


20 per session

Join the work team and learn while doing at Inventing Earth's home in Longmont, as we build raised bed gardens, turn the compost, create retaining walls of caged river stone, make custom stepping stones, and preserve the harvest, making apple sauce, pies, and so forth. We have different projects going on weekly. Bring a bunch of your friends and make up to 20 Simbi an hour and learn while doing at the magical Margaret on Atwood, an urban homestead.

Training & Qualifications


Ben and Greene grew up in rural New England, learning all the sustainable crafts they now practice, including sewing and hand sewing, growing and gathering food, cooking and food preserving, splitting wood, refinishing and fixing furniture, renovating houses, and the dozens of skills that keep together a home and ensure food security. They're turing their .25 acre home in Longmont into a teaching and learning center for sustainable food production as well as a home for their large scale opera and theatre projects.

Availability & Preferences


Most days of the week and weekends.

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi

Simbi received Help with Simbiotic Stories For Our Blog from Greene
Sep 12, 2016
Greene is an immensely knowledgeable and creative being. We were blown away by her many long-term initiatives, which include renovating her home into an arts center, building a community, and making the world a better place through her non-profit. We were elated to learn that Greene's values were in line with ours—it's like we're meant to be! In her story, she details how Simbi members are helping... her achieve her and her husband's goal of building their own creative zone. It's truly inspiring to see members come together and collaborate to reach their ambitions. Thank you, Greene, for the lovely story and for being such a supportive member of our community!show more

I had a wonderful online session with Mary. She helped testing my space, light, colors, sounds and even gave me some tips being on camera. Super grateful for this prompt exchange that is a start of a new beginning for my online business. Very personable, knowledgeable and helpful. I will definitely reach out to her in the future. Thank you !

About Greene Fyre

I'm a bit of a Renaissance person, having worked professionally in fine and performing arts, owned my own businesses, been a professional writer and editor, now renovating and decorating our beautifu...l home and arts center in Colorado, complete with permaculture gardens (that need a lot of help!) . I offer marketing and business coaching for folks with visionary businesses as well as creative services (writing, editing, design) if a project strikes my fancy. I love solving creative problems. Hit me with your thorniest issues! This year's focus has so far been on building our sustainable gardens and permaculture urban homestead. It's been great fun introducing people young and old to the "old ways", working in the gardens, growing our own food and creating beauty from humble materials. Join me! show more
