May Open House and Garden Readiness Sunday May 7th, 13:00-15:00

Free Event!

Come on out to The Deanery Project to explore the Eastern Shore, and learn about all that we do! Take a tour of the grounds, sit on the dock, hike our trails, or get down in the dirt with us! We’ll be spending the afternoon getting the gardens underway, and planting out saplings in our tree nursery. Donations of seeds and plants are much appreciated! If you’re interested in tending to your own plot, there are options in our community gardens.

Permaculture Design Certification Intensive (with P3 Permaculture) August 14th-27th

Back by popular demand, P3 will be returning this summer to lead a two-week, internationally recognized, Permaculture Design Certification Course.

From the P3 Website:

This course aims to equip students to feel confident in their ability to design positive solutions in their gardens, in their communities, and in their own lives. At P3 Permaculture we emphasize that permaculture goes beyond agriculture; permaculture is a holistic design system that we can apply on any scale and in any situation.

The first principle of permaculture is “Observe and Interact.” Close observation of the natural principles that drive ecological systems is one of the cornerstones of permaculture. In permaculture we believe that nature knows best, and that designs based on earth’s logic is the best way to heal broken systems.

Our curriculum pays particular attention to energy, water, and food systems, as well as various aspects of social permaculture including social economies, and self and community care. For more information, or to register, visit P3’s webpage <http://www.p3permaculture.ca/deanerypdc.html> for the event.

Course registration fee includes meals and accommodations for two weeks, in addition to all course supplies.
