Hi There Fruit Club!
Here is the low down on May’s club meeting…Permaculture!! Or as our speaker, Scott James says… ‘The (Mis)adventures in Permaculture: A Decade of Fun and Fruit’. Scott says, “It all started with a peach tree…a welcome-to-the-world gift from a neighbor when my little girl was born…”.
Scott plans to talk about– what permaculture is, how he got into it, the benefits of permaculture and maybe some trial & error stories followed by Q&A time.
Please join us for this lively discussion!
- Our meeting (as usual) is the third Thursday of the month, May 18 at 6:30pm.
- Downstairs at the Bainbridge Island Grange– 10340 Madison Ave NE, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110
*Note our new Grange location is at street level entrance on the north side of the building.
