Something new and different from Dave Jacke

Announcing a workshop that I hope will knock your socks off!

Ecological Cultures by Design: 

The Inner Landscape of Ecosystem Mimicry

Dave Jacke with special guests John and Nancy Todd

July 15-17, 2016, Omega Institute, Rhinebeck, NY

The belief in separation forms the core of our current crises—humans from nature, spirit from matter, mind from body—the false divisions are legion. Cultures of separation shred ecosystems even as they disintegrate our sense of self. Yet the seeds of solutions lie within the problem.  Given the timing and nature of the challenges, we must quickly create diverse, multifaceted paths forward.  Interconnected ecosystems can teach us how to create ecological human cultures, and through ecosystem mimicry we re-member ourselves as part of nature. But we must do this consciously, by design.

All humans design. The ability lives in each of us. It fuels our individual and collective creativity. Conscious ecological design also offers deep integrative power.  Profound lessons for both our individual selves and our collective lives lie inherent within the ecological design process.  This workshop will elucidate the frameworks for functional, effective and conscious ecological design, and give you experience with those frames and those processes: presentations and design exercises will seed improvements to our design understanding, effectiveness, and efficiency. More importantly, we will connect the inner landscape of ecological design to the big-scale tasks at hand, and we’ll delve into some of the fundamental truths the ecological design process offers about who we are as humans, what is the nature of reality, and how we might live more fully into our present and future selves while doing the practical work the world and the times demand of us.  Ecological design visionaries John Todd and Nancy Jack Todd join us Saturday afternoon.

Experienced and novice designers alike are welcome.

Small Fruits class, Thursday 6/23 at CCE Tompkins

Small Fruits for Home Gardens

Thursday, June 23, 2016, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

CCE Tompkins, 615 Willow Avenue Ithaca

Cost: $5 - $10 sliding scale

Small fruits are ideal to grow if you are short on space and time. They are easy to fit into a home landscape and start producing fruit a year or two after planting. Currants, gooseberries and jostaberries will be ripe in the CCE gardens, so we will do some tasting of these lesser-known fruits. We will also explore more common fruits such as raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries. Find out about cold hardiness, pollination, soil preparation, propagation, varieties to try, and more.

Pre-registration is required.  Go to http://ccetompkins.org/events/2016/06/23/small-fruits-for-home-gardens for more information or to register online, or call 272-2292 to register and pay by phone.

6/5: Mushroom Cultivation Workshop in Homer

Mushroom Cultivation Workshop
Sunday, June 5, 9:00am-12:00pm

<at> Lone Birch Stables, 5668 US Route 11, Homer NY 

Would you like to  learn how to grow your own mushrooms? Learn various techniques for two different species. Learn where to place the logs and how to fruit. Get to take home a log which will produce this year and for years to come.

Growing mushrooms from thinned trees and firewood tree tops is one way landowners can help feed themselves with otherwise scrap wood. Log grown mushrooms are of better quality than other commercially, sawdust grown mushrooms. Growing your own mushrooms at home is a fun ’side’ project for all ages.  With just a little care, you can harvest each log for up to 3-4 years.   Pre-registration is required and only space for 20 registrants. To register or for more information call Jared Popoli at (607)591-2782 or email terrapinstationed-PkbjNfxxIARBDgjK7y7TUQ@public.gmane.org . There will be a fee of $20 per person to cover costs of materials.

5/17: Master Gardener “After-the-Plant-Sale” SALE!

C’mon over after work tomorrow and check out what’s for sale!  Prices are too good to pass up and there’s still a good selection!  Please forward to friends and neighbors!

 

Master Gardener “After-the-Plant-Sale” SALE!

Tuesday, May 17, 3:00-6:00pm

<at> Cooperative Extension Education Center, 615 Willow Avenue, Ithaca 14850

If you missed the huge Spring Garden Fair & Plant Sale this past Saturday, here's another chance to stock your garden with beautiful perennials, berry bushes, cannas, and dahlias, grown specifically for the plant sale or donated from the personal gardens of our Master Gardener volunteers.  When the sale ended, plants that remained in the Master Gardener sales area were brought back here to Cooperative Extension and there’s still a good selection from which to choose (sorry, we can’t check on specific plant availability!).  Prices are reduced and range from $2 or $3 for small pots, to $4 or $5 for larger pots!   Plants will be behind our building, just off the parking lot beneath the pergola, and Master Gardener volunteers will be available to help you. 

 

Visit: http://ccetompkins.org/events/2015/05/19/master-gardener-after-the-plant-sale-sale for photos of some of the plants, and a map to our location!
