Join us to help install a demonstration food forest garden based on permaculture principles in Rio Vista!

This public, hands-on installation workshop series will create a demonstration food forest garden in Rio Vista at a home for Veterans, creating an opportunity to learn about rainwater capture, simple greywater systems that reuse household water and how to plant and mulch for a water-wise garden that builds healthy soil and yields food.

This is a great way to learn techniques and get ideas for your own yard!

Below are details on each hands-on workshop day:

DAY 1: Sunday, April 18 – Greywater

Register here!

Learn how to install a three-way valve, route used water from the laundry machine out into the landscape and prepare the landscape to receive that greywater.
Volunteer tasks: Moving mulch, digging, helping to install the laundry-to-landscape greywater system

DAY 2: Saturday, May 1 – Planting and Adding Drip Irrigation

Register here!

Learn what plants help your garden thrive by working together as an ecosystem and how to install drip irrigation systems.
