Our latest video, by Kateri Sava and Kalyn Finnell, covering last year’s Greenhouse Design Workshop.

Post- Capitalist Cannabis

May 14, 10am to 3pm

It doesn’t need to be an expensive commodity, but a fun plant ally that we can trade and share freely. Now that growing cannabis is legal for everybody, it’s time to demystify the growing of this valuable medicinal plant. Debora’s approach to cannabis is influenced by Permaculture, social justice, and sustainable living. She believes in selecting and saving our own seeds to promote community resilience.

This is a class for the beginner soil-based cannabis grower- and a great refresher for those out of practice. Deborah will cover all that we need to know for the bulk of the growing season, from soil building to seed sowing, transplanting and pruning. She will also discuss growing outdoors, in pots, greenhouses, and other protected situations. Read the full workshop info here.

Greenhouse Design Workshop

April 23, 10am to 3pm

This workshop will help you determine the appropriate design for a greenhouse customized to your needs. Will it be attached to a living structure? How many windows will you need and where will they be placed? Will you purchase a kit or build your own? When should your favorite vegetables be planted and where will they thrive within the greenhouse?

Being able to grow some of our own food has become more important than ever. Last year’s Greenhouse Design Workshop was given rave reviews. For the full workshop description, click here.
