Thursday Work Party, April 17 [Photo Set] — Green Acres Permaculture Village

Last Thursday, the rains started and as of this writing, the clouds are still producing misting rain. This weather always reminds of the porch on my grandmother’s home in mountains of Virginia, and the smell of Scotland. Spring showers didn’t keep us from getting outside to work behind DeKist 2 house, where I reside

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.”
