Urban Patchwork Workshop #5: Neighborhood Tree RX – Mulch Basins and Swales!
Permaculture instructors and designers will lead a hands-on tree rescue day about creating mulch basins and swales to save your trees from the coming summer drought.
HISTORY: A wonderful neighborhood beautification organization called Sustainable Neighborhoods worked with dozens of neighbors near 2222/Lamar to plant seven new oak trees to shade the intersection. But poor soil is sucking the trees dry. Without proper earthworks to feed the soil and build up nutrients and microbes, the trees will die. They’re already suffering even though they’ve received supplemental water.
In this half-day workshop/community volunteer day you’ll:
- Help save some community trees from drought
- Learn permaculture techniques for long term tree care
- Learn about the concept of “earthwork” and how it can change your world
- Have some of your site specific questions answered by professionals
