Description

Drawing on the wisdom of ecological systems and indigenous knowledge, Permaculture offers us a vision, design approach, and tools to create a world of health and abundance. Increased inclusion and support of leadership and perspective from women of diverse backgrounds is vital to this vision.

In this unique and innovative program, we explore diversity and leadership while building our confidence. We practice teaching Permaculture for various formats, from introductory workshops, special topics, and short courses, to the core Permaculture design certificate course.

Using Permaculture principles as our guide, we work from patterns to details in a supportive and collaborative atmosphere. Participants walk away with a teaching toolbox, including:

• How to use Permaculture principles and ethics in our teaching
• Teaching techniques for different learning styles, audiences, and venues
• How to work effectively as a teaching team
• Best practices in planning, marketing, and evaluating courses
• A comprehensive manual of resources and teaching materials
• Access to a network of teachers and practitioners from around the globe

Participants design and teach a Permaculture topic of their choice with personalized feedback from instructors who have more than 30 combined years of teaching experience.

This course requires an application and is open to Women who hold a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC).

The course begins Sunday at 4:00 p.m.The Children’s Program is generally available during standard workshop hours only.

Visit the links below to learn more about these remarkable private gardens that will be open for one day only this summer! Co-sponsored by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County. For more information visit www.ccetompkins.org/opendays

 

Suwinski Garden, 451 Sheffield Road, Ithaca

Sue and Jan Suwinski have been planting gardens at their spacious country property for over 30 years. Sunny borders surround the house and are planted with a vibrant and colorful mix of shrubs and perennials. A flagstone patio with a contemporary water feature is a tranquil place to relax and take in long views of the horse pastures and fields. A series of shade gardens winds property, beautifully planted with shrubs and perennials with contrasting foliage colors and textures.
https://www.gardenconservancy.org/open-days/garden-directory/suwinski-garden

Gagnon Garden, 2353 Spencer Road (Rt. 34/96), West Danby

Joel and Sally Gagnon combine food production and ornamental plantings on their country property. The front gardens feature borders planted with wide swathes of colorful annuals and perennials. The back gardens are primarily devoted to fruit and vegetable production, with many mature fruit-bearing plants including apples, pears, mulberries, plums, paw-paws,peaches, blueberries, raspberries, gooseberries, currants, grapes, kiwis and strawberries as well as nut trees. The extensive organic vegetable garden supplies produce for the household for the entire year.
https://www.gardenconservancy.org/open-days/garden-directory/gagnon-garden

LaDue Garden, 1132 Snyder Hill Road, Ithaca 

This three-acre property features many different themed gardens, including a lily garden, ornamental grass garden, hosta garden, prairie garden and a birdhouse garden, among others. The gardens around the house, barns and long fencelines of this country property are planted with masses of perennials and flowering shrubs. A large vegetable garden provides lots of food for the family. Eddy LaDue has created detailed maps of the plants in each garden, and these maps will be available to garden visitors at the Open Day.
https://www.gardenconservancy.org/open-days/garden-directory/ladue-garden

Myers Garden, 1071 Michigan Hollow Road, Spencer

Wayne’s gardens are an amazing wonderland of gorgeous plantings, unique hardscaping and interesting historical features. Six acres of rolling lawn and perennial beds contain more than 550 different varieties of perennials nestled behind and between fieldstone walls and structures. Features include a covered bridge, a working water wheel on a post-and-beam constructed feed mill, a blacksmith shop, and a huge glass sponge fossil rock enclosed in a unique display case. Other unusual features include a thirty-foot-diameter stone sundial and a potting shed garden with four raised beds.Wayne’s latest hobby is constructing huge metal flowers from discarded farm machinery parts and these flower sculptures can be found throughout the gardens.
https://www.gardenconservancy.org/open-days/garden-directory/myers-gardens

Ridenour Garden, 346 Warren Road, Ithaca

Winding stone pathways lead you to the highlight of this garden - a large pond behind the house filled with floating lotus plants. Dozens of the huge lotus blooms will be open on the day of the tour. Gardens nestled around the house and pond are filled with a variety of annuals and perennials. Nancy is an artist, so look for unique copper and cement sculptures distributed throughout the gardens. Before you leave, take time to visit Lotus Studios on the property to view photographic interpretations of the lotus and other flowers, as well as scenes from Cornell University and Nancy’s extensive travels.

7/23: "The Hemlock Wooly Adelgid" FREE film & talkback at Cinemapolis

THE HEMLOCK WOOLY ADELGID
Thursday, July 23rd, 7:00 pm
<at> Cinemapolis, 120 E. Green Street, Ithaca NY

 

FREE ADMISSION!
Film screening, followed by a Talkback with:

·         Mark Whitmore - Forest Entomologist

·         Hilary Lambert - ED Cayuga Watershed

·         Chris Foito - Filmmaker (and former Cinemapolis staffer)

A species few people have heard of - yet it is devastating the Hemlock forests and the delicate ecosystems that depend upon them. The Hemlock Woolly Adelgid is infesting our own backyards of upstate New York and has already spread throughout the east coast of North America from the Carolinas up into Canada.  The film, The Hemlock Woolly Adelgid, aims to engage and educate the viewer on this all too often, over looked invasive species by explaining its past, present, and what could easily be the future if significant action is not taken.

Through the use of archival footage of other invasive forest pests and beautiful cinematic visuals, the film illustrates the vital importance of The Eastern Hemlock Tree as a foundation species in North American forests, and raises the questions of what should be done to prevent the spread of the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid and the growing phenomena of invasive species as a whole.

Beautiful farm land for sale: Champlain Valley, VT

Some family friends are selling their place…definitely has a lot going for it!  Check it out if interested!  DO email them—DO NOT email me!

dave
————-

Lush, fertile 89 acre organic homestead and farm for sale in Vermont’s Champlain Valley, ideally suited to build a multi-home family or group compound. The property is zoned for multiple uses including local food production, vegetable market gardens and pick-your-own, CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), viticulture, horse boarding and specialty dairying as well as land subdivision, with a minimum of eight 2-acre building lots and 2,200 feet of road frontage on town-maintained gravel roads.  The property is near Middlebury College and ski areas, with views of both the Green Mountains and the Adirondacks; it lies within commuting distance to Rutland, Middlebury and Burlington. 

Deep, rich, productive soils with high organic matter abound throughout the property, which also includes one livestock pond, five springs, and two drilled wells providing an excellent and abundant supply of sweet water.  Land sits on and aside a wide ridge, with 42 acres of gently-sloping, well-drained meadow and hayfields, 31 acres of pasture, a 15 acre woodlot with hardwoods and maple sugar stand, and a large and extremely fertile garden area including fruit trees and berries. The south-facing house and ridge land are suited for alternative energy production including solar and wind power. 

Buildings include an historic 1,585 square foot 8 room post and beam home with screened-in porch, 1½ story attached shed, and 1 story attached lean-to that served as a farm stand, and a sturdy gambrel-roofed former dairy and horse barn with upper storage for 7,000 square hay bales.  Other outbuildings, in need of some repair, include a chicken coop, 5-bay equipment shed, tool shed, and foundation for a 25’ x 30’ greenhouse.

A former family dairy farm, CSA and baled hay business, the 89 acres were organically operated for 28 years by the current owners who have retired from farming.  The farm currently produces certified organic hay; the property was not affected by flooding from Hurricane Irene.  The owners are available for after-sale consultation on homesteading, food and hay production, and agricultural land use.

See www.landsofamerica.com/listing/904262  for additional details, photos and soil maps.  

$625,000.  Contact owners through Lands of America site or at popoma2-ntQ8I44N4zM@public.gmane.org .

Permaculture Park volunteer sessions, Thursdays 4-7 pm

Volunteer Sessions at the Permaculture Park

Alice Miller Way, Ithaca

Thursdays from 4-7 pm, starting on Thursday 6/18

Tools, gloves and instruction provided

 

Volunteer gardening sessions will be held in the Permaculture Park in Ithaca’s Northside on Thursdays from 4-7 pm. The Permaculture Park is located in Conley Park on Alice Miller Way, between the Sciencenter and the former Neighborhood Pride grocery store on Hancock Street.

 

Neighborhood volunteers and staff from CCE Tompkins have been working together to plant edible species in the park for the last two years, and the park is starting to bear fruit this summer! Strawberries and Juneberries are ripe for picking now, and later this summer there will also be raspberries, currants, gooseberries, apples and plums ripening in the park.

 

Volunteer for an hour or two to help support this project, or just take a walk through the park to see how edible plants can successfully be planted in a public setting in an urban environment. The new Northside farmers market also takes place on Thursdays from 4-7 pm, in the parking lot of the former Neighborhood Pride grocery store. For more information contact Chrys Gardener at 272-2292 or email cab69-HmMyXyqgL2CVc3sceRu5cw@public.gmane.org

6/19-6/24: Gardener’s Plastic Pot Swap AND Canning Jar Exchange

Gardener’s Plastic Pot Swap AND Canning Jar Exchange

Friday, June 19-Wednesday, June 24, 9:00am-6:00pm

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County, 615 Willow Avenue, Ithaca NY

 

LEAVE your plastic nursery pots, trays and cell packs IN GOOD CONDITION  (no broken or torn plastic) in the designated area on the east  side of the CCE Parking lot at 615 Willow Ave.  Pots will be sorted by size, so help us out by putting them in the pile with similar sizes!

 

TAKE AWAY as many pots as you can use, too!  Plastic that is left after the event will be taken to a recycler for processing. Recycle your plastic plant containers instead of throwing them away.

 

CANNING JAR SWAP!  Canning jars must be empty, free of debris and in good condition (not broken).  Please bring your canning jars to donate in BOXES, NOT BAGS!  All size canning jars are welcomed, but they must be true canning jars (no mayonnaise or sauce jars, please). Take away as many jars as you can use!

 

The purpose of the swap is to promote reuse of pots and jars.  Gardeners and canners appreciate this opportunity for reusing pots and canning jars.  After June 24th, no more pots or jars will be accepted at Cooperative Extension, however county residents can take these items to the Tompkins County Recycling/Solid Waste Center.  For more information, call Cooperative Extension at 607-272-2292 or visit http://ccetompkins.org/events/2015/06/19/gardeners-pot-swap-recycling-event.
