Event Description

Come explore our "permaculture" garden! Our goal with our front yard was to turn it from a grassy space that no one used to one where pollinators could be found in abundance on native flowers, we could harvest some of our favorite fruits and vegetables, capture rainwater before it reaches the street, and regenerate the soil. We started the project in July of 2021 and we've been amazed at how much the garden has taken on a life of its own in only a year! We now enjoy spending time in the front garden and it takes minimal effort to maintain it.

For any questions regarding the event, or to learn more check out the garden's Instagram @MaryEffies.Garden (named after one of the original gardeners on our property!).

This event is kid-friendly and handicap accessible.
