GANG 2010 - Workshop #3

How's It Going? Problem Solving and Re-design
Saturday, June 26, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
This workshop, led by Rhonda Baird, will ask the all-important questions "Is this working?" and "How can it work better?" We will use permaculture thinking to re-evaluate the design and function of various elements of the GANG site. We may make small physical changes and work in the garden, but this design workshop is intended as a thought pattern exercise that can be applied to any landscape. This is an all-day workshop so BYO lunch. Snacks and beverages provided.

Check out Ann's blog for more pictures and descriptions from the workshop.

The next workshop in the 2010 series is "Summer Begets Fall: Planting the Fall Garden;" held Sunday, August 1, 1p - 5p.

Workshop space is limited. To pre-register, please contact Ann Kreilkamp 812-334-1987or Suggested donation per class: $5 to $15.
