Permaculture Food: Grow & Preserve

20


20 simbi 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
