Permaculture & Mulch Class @ SSCC This Saturday

Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) will be offering a free Permaculture Site Analysis and Sheet Mulch class this Saturday, January 15, from 10:00 am to 3:30 pm at the site on the grounds of South Seattle Community College.

Learn about the elements of permaculture site analysis from Laura Sweany, owner of Terra Flora Farms, in a free morning class at South Seattle Community College. The class will meet at the north end of the South Seattle Community College campus, in the tan-colored LHO building #150, room 2, just next door to The West Seattle Tool Library. After the class, attendees and volunteers from the community will be invited to a sheet mulching demonstration on the Orchard’s grounds to create the site’s first garden beds and wood chip paths. Come see how quickly a site can be transformed!

The day’s schedule is

  • 12:15 pm – 1:00 pm: Lunch
