It’s one thing to grow a garden in your backyard but replacing your front lawn with a fruit and veggie garden is taking gardening to a whole different level. This growing trend is emerging at a time when the ‘food not lawns‘ movement is challenging zoning laws worldwide as more and more people want to take their food production into their own hands.
Join us Tuesday, August 21 (6-8pm, come at 5pm for extra networking) for our monthly potluck gathering as we are hosted again by Mark and Allison of Mountain Run Permaculture. Last month we saw their incredible work on the Bedford YMCA kids’ educational garden – and this month we will tour the new front ‘yarden’ at their homestead. Get inspired to turn up your sod, get pointers, and learn how to setup an organic garden designed with permaculture principles.
WHERE: Mountain Run Farm (Mountain Run Permaculture) / Mark and Allison Angelini Homestead | 12035 Big Island Highway, Big Island, Virginia 24526 (northern Bedford County / Sedalia) (PLEASE NOTE: While this is Mountain Run Farm – it is a house, this is NOT the Showbarn and it is NOT the camp).
