Permaculture Workshop: Soil Testing and “Stacking Functions”

On Sunday, July 14th, 10 AM, join Cameron Weber, Peter Callen and special guest Rachel Moore as we explore the ways to read soil conditions and listen to what the soil beneath our feet is saying. Do you wish your soil was more springy, spongy, bouncy, fertile? How do we encourage those conditions? Knowing what kind of soil you have is a good place to start!

Description

The Open Space Visitor Center Permaculture Field July Workshop:

Types of soil testing, and the Permaculture principle of “Stacking Functions”

Sunday, July 14th, 10 AM

On Sunday, July 14th, 10 AM, join Cameron Weber, Peter Callen and special guest Rachel Moore as we explore the ways to read soil conditions and listen to what the soil beneath our feet is saying. Do you wish your soil was more springy, spongy, bouncy, fertile? How do we encourage those conditions? Knowing what kind of soil you have is a good place to start!

We will also explore the Permaculture principle of “Stacking Functions”, which is really looking at the many reasons why we choose to do the things we do. The layout (rows, beds, trellises, paths, etc.) and the plants that go in that layout; where do they go? what varieties to use? what about weeds? what about volunteers? what about people? where do they fit in? When we examine why we’re doing something, we want to come with as many reasons as we can to answer that question: this is called “stacking functions”. This broadens our capacity, our minds, our resilience to problems, and the diversity of the farm or garden.
