Planting Trees

I gathered together some recent messages from the austinperm listserver:

Kirby commenting on permablitzes:

Each blitz usually consists of us building 48 to 120 linear feet of berm and swale, planting the area extensively with fruit trees and farmers trees, with vines and brambles and tubers, with cover crops and annual vegetable seeds, and installing irrigation.

On the Question of Farmers Trees, Kirby answers:

Help Travis High students green their school

See how our garden grows. Volunteer Saturday, February 23, 9:00 - 1:00, to help Travis High School students build a pond, plant fruit trees, mulch and finish earthworks. Learn from permaculture experts and work along side students to revitalize and beautify an unused space. We need volunteers to dig, haul mulch, plant and solarize the ground.

Some tools will be available, but please bring a steel rake, wheel barrow, shovel, hoe, or a pick ax if you have them. Wear gloves, clothes and shoes for working in the dirt!
