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!

  • Gorgeous woodland or field camping.  "Camper camping" space.  Dorm beds for those who prefer something else...
  • Field trips (optional) on Friday to see some amazing places that are making permaculture, biodynamics, natural building and related techniques happen in our climate zone.
  • Discounts for pulling a volunteer shift or two!
  • Vendors and barter blankets on the Common.
  • A chance to connect and get fired up by the connections and affinity we have for our work in the world!
