We decided to build an herb spiral garden with our young kids because our farm tasks were too heavy for them to manage. The idea came from my daughter who was inspired by the Herb Fairies books by Kimberley Gallagher.
She was sure that if we built a spiral with all these different plants the fairies would come and share their medicine and magic with us. So we learnt online how to build an herb spiral and that there was a whole world of permaculture out there that focuses on how to integrate herb spiral designs, beauty and utility into our family project. Permaculture is a movement sweeping many Quebec communities, villages and cities. It is an integrated approach to interacting with your natural environment to mimic natural cycles that the forest already does to maintain an infinite balance between all living things within that system, including humans.
Off shoots of the movement address issues such as sustainable housing, soil health, people care in communities and sacred economies where fair share and social justice are at the forefront.
Many permaculture techniques come from observing what our natural environment already does to maintain balance without human intervention, allowing systems to fall into place so that they support themselves. As a woman farmer, I wanted to support the thriving initiatives that include other women farmers and permaculture so I met up with Gwynne Bassen, an amazing and inspiring woman from Abbondanza farms in Mansonville. It is really exciting when farmers get together and decide to create community by working towards similar goals.
On Saturday evening, we will all return to Le Noyau farm for dinner and camping. Then on Sunday we will look at how companion planting, mushroom and soil health can contribute to the success of our crops and create mini sustainable systems in every pocket where we implement them. Vivian Kaloxilos, other amazing woman in permaculture from DocTerre, a soil health company, will join us and will bring her soil microscope to let us look deeper into the soil and go hunting for nematodes, bacteria and fungi and project it on a larger screen.
So if you want to ignite the child in you, learn about how to see fairies again, and how to integrate some of these amazing systems into your life, check us out, give us a shout and come learn with us. This two-day workshop introduces you to the basics of permaculture, an ethical, sustainable design method that we can apply in our gardens.
Permaculture employs the observation of patterns and features in nature to design for a sustainable future. We will learn how these design tools can help us create beautiful, abundant, and self-sustaining gardens.
Permaculture design tools will be put into practice as we learn to build two complementary garden features: First we will prepare the ground with a lasagna bed, a tried and true method of building productive garden beds without disturbing the soil, and without breaking your back!
Share your perspectives, opinions and solutions! We will dig deep into soil health, mushrooms, companion planting, and seeds. By the end of the day we will have a better understanding of the life beneath the ground that our plants depend on, and how to combine plant varieties to get the best results in our gardens.
Their courses have inspired farmers, homeowners, and business owners to incorporate sustainable practices onto their sites. The cost of this workshop includes a free lunch on Saturday and Sunday. Dinner on Saturday night and breakfast on Sunday morning will be potluck-style; please bring something to share with the group! Participants are required to come prepared with everything they need, including camping gear.
