We're delighted to be teaming up with Nance Klehm's Spontaneous Vegetation to offer two practical workshops on making two-bucket SIPs.
They are scheduled for Wednesday May 20 (6-8 pm) and Saturday May 30 (1-3 pm).
You’ll go home with:
A ready to plant two-bucket sub-irrigated planter (SIP). Our experience has shown that it will produce, on average, 25 lbs of tomatoes during a growing season.
Enough potting mix, organic fertilizer, and powdered lime to plant your tomato.
An organic heirloom tomato plant, from the Green Roof Growers seed-starting group.
A comprehensive understanding of how SIPs work and how to put yours to work once you get home.
Where - Wicker Park, near Division and Leavitt
Specific directions given upon confirmed reservations.
When - Wed., May 20th (6-8 pm) and Sat., May 30th (1-3 pm)
Cost - $50

Co-teaching with Bruce and H2 will be LA's favorite homesteader Erik Knutzen of Homegrown Evolution and co-author, with his wife Kelly Coyne, of The Urban Homestead. Autographed copies will be for sale and we'll be giving away a copy or two as well.
Hope to see you in May...
