2018 Madison Area Permaculture Guild’s PDC

Help spread the word!  This will be our 9th PDC course offered.  Our 7th with MAPG being the lead teachers and organizers.  We have graduated over 155 students and it has threaded out into our community and the world in amazing ways.

This year’s course will take place out at Terra Simpla Permaculture & Retreat Center in Stoughton, WI.  It is a beautiful 5 acre sight just outside of Stoughton with lots of systems in place and many more waiting to happen.  We will have a focus in the course on a possible pond on the property.

The dates for our PDC are:  March 9th, 10th & 11th; April 13, 14 & 15; May 4, 5 & 6.

Lead Teachers will be Kate Heiber-Cobb, Marian Farrior with assistance from Robert Roeven and Drew Carlson.  We will be having tours and each weekend there will be some kind of hands-on project.

Please see our PDC tab for more details.

Rosa Rugosa and Other Plants – Giveaway in the Herb Garden!

Monday August 28th from 6:00-7:30pm – Rosa Rugosa and Other Plants –  Giveaway

The rose hips are ready to harvest and there is anise hyssop and even some yarrow flowers ready for picking.  This time there is no formal talk, just harvesting in the herb garden and digging up rosa rugosa, yarrow and other plants to share out in the community.  Bring your garden gloves, clean shovels, bags and pots for your plants as well as bug spray (there haven’t been many bugs lately though).  Donations, even just a few dollars, are much appreciated for the plants and to help fund the expansion of our herbal offerings.

Bring garden gloves with you if you have them.  We have tools and gloves available to borrow.  Reply-all to this message for carpooling, or contact Jean at nativamedica@gmail.com

Garden is at 3919 Gray Road, DeForest (just 2 miles north of Madison in Token Creek).  E-mail for directions if needed.
