Urban Farm’s Local Lecture Series

There is so much you can do in your farms and gardens! Join us for informative discussions on specific aspects of being an urban farmer in this valley. We have several topics to choose from and a great location to enjoy them.  This summer we are starting this Lecture Series at the Creative Living’s Farmers Market which is going to be a locally focused resource for hand made, hand crafted, and locally grown items. This might just be your new Friday Date-Night option!

Your Keys to Regenerative Living,
Intro to Permaculture!

December 21st, 6:30 – 8 pm

Permaculture is an interesting word. Made up of two words – Permanent and Culture – and is a process designed for us to look to nature and design systems that work in the flow of natural systems and not against them. Join some local Permies for a lively conversation delving into the notion of permaculture and just how it could apply to your life…it forever changed Greg’s and so can it yours.
