Putting the garden to sleep – Part I.

Rumania-189Permaculture sheet mulching – preparing beds for winter and next season

New Moon Weekend, 24th-26th of October

Thanks for all the help this year from volunteers from all over the world – we have done a lot of things this season! Now it is time to put the garden to sleep and prepare it for the next season.

We will put the garden to sleep for the winter and prepare the soil for next season. For this we will use traditional local gardening methods mixed with some permaculture. We will use sheet mulching and other methods to assure a fruitful future season.

Activities will include:
Digging, raking, sheet mulching, weeding, landscaping.

Welcome soup, singing, playing music, sharing stories. Bring your instruments! We have a guitar, a mandolin, several flutes and percussion instruments that are eager to be played.

Saturday and Sunday
8.30 breakfast (cereal, milk)
9.30-12.30 working in pairs in the garden
13.00- lunch and siesta
16.00-19.00 – finishing projects

We will provide some food, but please bring food to share. We will cook together using the ingredients for a yummy lunch and supper.
Please, no canned food. You can bring along for instance: onions, seasonal vegetables, home cooked food, rice, pasta, potatoes, cornmeal, homemade preserves. Think Nature!

Sleeping: shared sleeping space, bring your own sleeping bag and mat.

Bring: warm clothing, raincoats, waterproof boots, gloves

Note: if somebody has the possibility to help us with transport up to the farm, please let us know. Thank you!

We have limited internet, so please text message us if you want to join +40 (742) 479 427 or send a message to info@organicartranch.org until Wednesay, 22nd of October
