August Gathering for MAPG at Troy Gardens on the 23rd.

Hi Everyone,
We will be doing a casual gathering at Troy Gardens Pizza Nite next Thursday, August 23rd between 4-7 pm.  I will be setting up a table and selling Permaculture books and pizza, from their wonderful pizza oven, will be served.  Not sure how much they charge for it, but also vegetables are for roasted up.  Here’s a link to their pizza nites.  http://www.communitygroundworks.org/content/farm-fresh-pizza
If you don’t know where Troy Gardens is, it’s on Troy Drive on the north side of Madison off of Northport Dr./Hwy. 113.  Take a left and just follow the road up to the gardens.  The community gardens, Kids Garden, Farm, Prairie and walking trails are quite lovely at this time of year.  If you have not been here, please check it out.
The pizza nites are family friendly.
Hope to see you.
Just an fyi, I will be out of town the later part of August and most of September.  Unless someone else plans a September meeting, there won’t be one.  It’s fine either way.  Let me know if it’s something you might want to do.  You need to let me know before August 25th.
Thanks,
Kate

10th Permaculture Guild Birthday Party Sunday, July 22nd

This coming Sunday, July 22nd
Noon until 2:30 pm
Frost Woods Beach Park
5800 Winnequah Rd., Monona
Potluck
Please bring your own dishes, silver, chairs, blankets, etc.  There are two picnic tables or so in the park.  I will bring a folding one for the food dishes just in case.
Beach is open at this point.  Great place for wading, swimming, kayaking, air mattressing or other flotation devices.  No lifeguard on duty.
Everyone is welcome no matter how much you have, or haven’t, participated in the Guild’s events over the years!!!  It’s about community.
This park has a very small parking lot, so please park on the nearby side streets, but not Winnequah Rd.
Lawn games are welcomed.  Water games too.  There are old, mature trees there that will provide some lovely shaded space for us to gather.  It is supposed to be 77 degrees and sunny.  Sounds like a perfect day to gather and celebrate.
With Care of the Earth, Care of the People, and Sharing the Resources in my heart,
Kate
