Coyote Creek Permablitz

Sat, 09/13/2014 - 9:00am to 4:00pm
Sun, 09/14/2014 - 9:00am to 4:00pm

It's getting to be that time of the year again when the permablitzes (our perennial food garden installations) begin. I'm really excited about our first blitz of the season being at Coyote Creek Farm where I have had the honor of helping to build two of the barns that house the hammer mill and pellet mil, a cow barn, and a couple of the houses used by staff.

This permablitz is also going to be our largest permablitz to date with the earthworks being done by Ken Tuck and his equipment operators Joe and Jessy. The equipment is scheduled to arrive next week at the farm.

Perm the park

Sat, 08/09/2014 - 9:00am to 1:00pm

A major goal for ape99 is to transform the abandoned section of city park that we're adjacent to here in east Austin.

We've had a few meetups to work on it from time to time but nothing consistent.

SO...going to try something new and in line with the permaculture directive of 'small and consistent changes"

We'll be stacking functions by hands-on exploration permaculture while creating a sustainable food forest. The best way to learn permaculture is by doing, not reading.
