What is an Urban Farm PERMA-BLITZ and why is there a cup of coffee laying on top of that garden?
A Perma-Blitz (often referred to as a ‘Blitz’) is an informal gathering (with coffee and tea served) involving a day on which a group of folks come together to help transform tired, worn out yards into productive and edible gardens. This Blitz is organized to benefit the Urban Farm Project in Traverse City, organized by O’k CSA, with support by Little Artshram, inviting the group to both learn new skills and carry out two, perhaps three, projects in one of the Urban Farm Projects’ back, front or side yard. This will help turn the urban farm sites from unused, neglected, or purely decorative, to productive, useful (and often attractive) annual and perennial food producing areas!
PERMA-BLITZ in Traverse City with the Urban Farm Project!
Sunday, May 6th, @ The Peace Patch Garden,
corner of 7th & Oak St.,
Drop by anytime between 1-6 pm. Blitzin’ with Soil: seed balls, soil sausages, sheet mulching a mini forest-garden, and building a backyard compost system.
Gardening IS the most sustainable form of agriculture and we ask you to join in on the permaculture fun of it!
Suggested donation to benefit the Urban Farm Project: $10 drop-by for a bit; $35 for the entire workshop.
Work-exchange hours available, Bay Bucks accepted!
NO one turned away for lack of funds!
We are simply trying to raise enough greenbacks to pay for start-up costs of the Urban Farm Project which amounts to about $1,000 and includes some fencing supplies, seeds, tubers, initial compost and soil amendments (that eventually each of these farm sites will produce). MOST of the infrastructure for these farm-sites are found and re-used materials.
Want to become an urban farm site in this Traverse City project? Show up this weekend and let’s talk!
