Join us Tuesday, August 20 (6-8pm) at the Angelini homestead on Mountain Run Farm, for our August Root Stock potluck. These monthly gatherings are a great way to connect with others in the local food movement in the greater Lynchburg region. We will be exploring the basics of agroforestry and ecological farm design with a hands-on talking tour of the property.
Mark and Allison, of Mountain Run Permaculture, are developing an integrative regenerative home and farm ecosystem with gardens, orchards, hedges and more, utilizing ecological design principles. We’ll explore the possibilities for integrating livestock into orchard systems using lightweight, inexpensive infrastructure. See how they utilize American Guinea Hogs and sheep to aide in orchard under-story establishment and maintenance, soil rehabilitation, and the synergy between trees, pasture and animals to produce a myriad of beneficial outcomes.
Don’t miss this opportunity to broaden your understanding of how land can be maximized with natural systems and human needs in harmony. This is a free event but you must RSVP.
