Marian taught her 8th and final class in the permaculture series today. It was a beautiful sunny morning, and the participants enjoyed learning about the many varieties of mushrooms, their relationship to other plants, and how to cultivate them. They reviewed all they had learned over the past 8 weeks, and then went outside to learn how to create the ideal compost (and compost tea), using just the right balance of carbon and nitrogen and brown and green layers, properly mixed together (plant material, newspaper scraps, cardboard, coffee grounds, food scraps, and more!). Everyone went home inspired to apply what they learned in the classroom (and field) to their own gardens. We hope to see participants at the upcoming Plant Sale and Expo at the Urban Farm on April 15! Photos by Alison Clary
