Fall Gardening class, CCE Tompkins, Tues 8/12, 6:30-8:00 pm

Fall Gardening -  Late Vegetables and Winter Cover Crops

Tuesday, August 12, 6:30-8:30 pm

Cornell Cooperative Extension, 615 Willow Avenue, Ithaca NY

Cost: $5-$10 (sliding scale)

Late summer is a great time to plant salad and cooking greens, cilantro and peas for fall harvest. It's also the best time to plant garlic for spring harvest, and over-wintering cover crops can also be sown now to add fertility and improve soil texture. Learn which crops are suitable for fall planting and when to plant them, and different methods for over-wintering vegetable garden beds.


For more information or to register, call 272-2292 or email cab69 <at> cornell.edu

PDC Description:  In our permaculture design certification courses, you will learn how to observe and use the same principles that make ecological systems self-sustaining and apply them to integrated homes and gardens. In addition, you will learn how to apply these principles to energy systems and water supplies, healthy communities, meaningful and fulfilling work, ecological economies, and global political movements for change.

 

Throughout it all, you’ll be engaged in learning and experiencing an empowering way of living in the world, surrounded and supported by like-minded people and instructors. Our goal is to make you a part of Rochester Permaculture Institute’s community, incorporating our seasonal activities into your permaculture experience as time permits. Activities may include fall pruning, seed planting, plant propagation, bed preparation, compost pile making, water harvesting techniques, natural building, and other activities.

Permaculture Park work party and potluck, Wed. 7/9

Permaculture Park Work Party and Potluck, Wednesday July 9 

Work Party from 4:30-6:30 pm

Potluck from 6:30-7:30

Location: The Permaculture Park is located in downtown Ithaca, between the Sciencenter on Rt. 13 and the old Neighborhood Pride building on Hancock Street.

Blog: http://permaculturepark.wordpress.com/

 

We will be sheet mulching the last bed and planting strawberry plants. Free strawberry plants will be available!

 

The work party will include a talk about the Apios americana (Potato Bean) at 5:30 pm, presented by Dr. Gautam Bhattacharya, who will also be donating several plants for an experimental garden plot in the park. This vine, which is also known by other names such as hopniss and groundnut, produces a tuber that is like a more nutritious version of a potato- similar taste and look, but almost 4x the protein content (15% vs. 4%.) Apios is very versatile and can be grown in regular soil but it's also notable for performing well in flooded, nutrient-poor environments such as swamps. This gives it an advantage if planted in areas that are vulnerable to heavy spring melts (such as our creek flooding!) It is also nitrogen fixer and helps regenerate the soil.

 

Apios is native to the area between Southern Canada and Florida and to the west as far as Colorado. However it has never been cultivated domestically, perhaps because the wild plants take a couple years to produce tubers. That makes these self-sowing perennials a perfect candidate for use in permaculture projects, which place less emphasis on immediate crop yields and allow for more patience. Dr. Bhattacharya's crops were acquired from stocks created during a breeding experiment at Louisiana State University. He is currently attempting to set up a study on them at Cornell. They've been planted in several local areas, such as the meadow at Beebe Lake, and we're excited to add them to the park as both an educational resource and a food producer!

 

For more information on the Apios americana and other edibles with domestication potential, see this article: http://www.wired.com/2014/06/potato-bean

 known by other names such as hopniss and groundnut, produces a tuber that is like a more nutritious version of a potato- similar taste and look, but almost 4x the protein content (15% vs. 4%.) Apios is very versatile and can be grown in regular soil but it's
 also notable for performing well in flooded, nutrient-poor environments such as swamps. This gives it an advantage if planted in areas that are vulnerable to heavy spring melts (such as our creek flooding!) It is also nitrogen fixer and helps regenerate the

 State University. He is currently attempting to set up a study on them at Cornell. They've been planted in several local areas, such as the meadow at Beebe Lake, and we're excited to add them to the park as both an educational resource and a food producer!<p></p></p>
