August meeting of the Rural Large Property Group

At Mike & Cara's - Please see the full article in the Forum

Event date: 8/24/2014 3:00 PM - 8:00 PM Export event

Geez, who’s hosting the permaculture meeting for our group this month? What, it’s us? Uh oh!!!

Seriously now, we, the Hagars, are happy to host the meeting this month and we sincerely apologize for the late notice. Hopefully since we regularly meet on the 4th Sunday of the month, you've all just been waiting to see where its happening! In celebration of the growing year winding down, we’d like to start it a wee bit later in the day and make it a dinner barbeque. We’ll supply the burgers and fixings, and you supply a side dish or dessert, and BYOB.

It’s too hot in the afternoon to make you work, so instead we’ve got several topics we’d like to tour at our place before we eat. They include:

◾4 small food forests, in various stages of growth

◾A new water collection system in its initial building phase, with 3 x 865 gallon tanks

◾Lessons learned in the food garden (those damned stink bugs!)

We anticipate we’ll walk and talk starting at 3:00 (note this is an hour later than normal), or when it seems everyone has arrived. Tours and discussion will undoubtedly take an hour or more, and we’ll fire up the BBQ after, around 5pm. By that time there should be shade at the back of the house, so we’ll pull the chairs up into a big circle for dinner and permie conversation.

Please RSVP here on this thread or to Cara (carahagar at so we have an idea how much burgers & fixings we need. We really hope to see you all here, including those who haven’t been to a meeting in awhile!
