I Pulled this from the latest Tricycle Garden's e-mail......
"PRESENTATION ON ASHEVILLE'S PERMACULTURE PARK!
Tuesday April 27th, 7-9pm, Permaculture (permanent agriculture) is the harmonious integration of landscape and people providing their food, energy, shelter, and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. Currently residing in Richmond's Museum District, Jonathan Brown is a certified urban permaculturalist who, with his wife, developed the nation's first edible, public forest garden in the City of Asheville, NC, the George Washington Carver Edible Park. This presentation will highlight this and some well developed urban ecology projects from around the country.
Location: Tricycle Gardens Headquarters, 211 West 7th Street
I plan to be there. This is some really exciting stuff. Also, if you haven't spent all your money already at this weekend's Herbs Gallore, there is still time buy Tricycle Gardens own kitchen garden plants. Tricycle will be selling their organically grown vegetable plants over the next few weeks at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens Plant Sale Thursday, April 29, through Saturday May 1, and at The South of the James Market twice per Month. I have been buying from them for the last couple years. The plants are healthy, organically grown, affordable, and the money you spend with them goes to support their very worthwhile mission.
