Advanced Drip Irrigation With Robert Kourik
Got water? One of our most precious natural resources, water has become a hot topic in recent years; how do we irrigate efficiently, how do we use this resource to maximize our benefits and minimize our use? How often to irrigate is a topic of great debate. You don’t want to miss this 2-day experiential workshop. Come out and get your hands dirty with the latest data-driven methods. We’ve asked Robert Kourik, the best in the industry, to share these water conservation systems with you. He literally wrote the book on advanced drip irrigation! An important subject is the use of evapotranspiration (ET) data to schedule irrigation times. A theory as to why the integration of ET-based irrigation might work on a daily basis will be presented.

Holistic Seed Stewardship Workshop With Rowen White
This is the second seed workshop in a two-part series hosted at the Permaculture Skills Center with our guest Rowen White. Until just a few generations ago, seed stewardship was an integral part of every farm and garden. Now most people purchase seeds to start their gardens instead of planting culturally and regionally important heirloom seeds. This workshop is a holistic, indigenous permaculture-based approach to seed stewardship that honors the many layers of seed culture. We cover everything from practical hands-on skills to cultural context and memory, with guiding principles that are rooted in an indigenous ecology of interconnected relations.
