Upcoming Activities at Sycamore Commons

The Urban Homesteading Bootcamp is happening at Sycamore Commons on Saturday/Sunday March 28/29. As usual, there are a range of great workshops happening from backyard bunnies, bees and birds to bokashi and building no-till garden beds and lots more! See: https://www.facebook.com/uhspr for more info.
As part of the Bootcamp, we will be building a Hugelkultur –  a long raised mounded bed filled with organic matter such as stumps, manure and other goodies, creating an incredibly fertile and moist growing area. We will build the Hugelkultur start to finish and will have the opportunity plant some early crops as well. If you are not able to make the whole Bootcamp weekend, you can still join us for this session on Sunday afternoon from 1:30-4:45 pm. The cost for the single workshop is $30. Subsidies are available.
Also, along side the Bootcamp, you can attend the following free workshop:
Freezer Composter Conversion Workshop
Saturday, March 28, 1:30 – 3:30 pm

Compost specialist, Bert Baillie, will share his plans on how to convert an old freezer into an efficient, rodent-proof and bear resistant composter. Participants will see a demonstration of part of the conversion process and be welcomed to assist in its creation. You are welcomed to bring any composting related questions to this workshop for us to brainstorm solutions to together. The workshop will be outside, so dress accordingly. There will be chairs available, if needed. This FREE workshop will be happening alongside the Urban Homesteader’s Weekend Workshop at Sycamore Commons. Questions?
