Southeastern Permaculture Gathering: INSECTS IN THE GARDEN, with Dr. Dick McDonald and Patryk Battle

Do your cabbages end up looking like this? Ours do. This is one of those situations where, when you find out that your problem is everybody’s problem, you don’t feel so crazy, or so dejected. Dr. Bug (Dick McDonald, Ph.D, an entomologist) says that this cabbage is over 75% gone, so it’s too late. But…

Charisse (Rebecca) and I finally returned home at around noon today, after an exhausting night, during which we and hundreds of other vehicles, were stopped, three lanes across, for nearly five hours, from about 9:30 p.m. to about 2:15 a.m, due to an intense and fatal three car smash-up just ahead on I 75 N

ARC at NAPC II

Ann Kreilkamp will be presenting at NAPC.

Screen Shot 2016-09-02 at 11.06.56 AMShe will give a presentation on “The Evolution of Green Acres Urban Village.” Gradually, over a period of seven years, we have been carving out an intentional village atmosphere inside a conventional suburban neighborhood. The presentation will include and emphasize both the specific difficulties of working with this particular site as well as stories of how we are learning how to integrate shadow material, both individual and social. Begun as the Green Acres Neighborhood Garden, the site and its people have evolved into the Green Acres Village and Urban Farm with a four-member CSA, weekly Community Dinners, art, work parties, shared tools, skills, and projects, annual special events, that celebrate seasonal changes, and a continuously creative intergenerational and multidimensional awareness.

The presentation will be Sunday, September 18, at 2 p.m.
She will also be on a panel on Thursday, September 15, at 11:30, where we will focus on “Neighborhood Resilience.”
