AMPY – Hoop Houses, Low Tunnels, Cold Frames, and Cover Crops

Another representation of the wealth of possibilities and resources within our own town…

Local food security depends on storage and season extension. In Michigan, we can grow salad greens, carrots, radishes, kale, swiss chard, and many more through winter — providing much needed nutrient-density through the coldest months.

Come learn from your local community as they share their experiences with you regarding local crop season extension systems. 

No home is complete without winter salads and carrots! 

As usual, suggested donation price is $10.00 with trade welcome. 

This is an open meeting, so tell your friends and family. Bring your grandma and your church buddy!

Biochar Workshop in Chelsea, MI

Biochar Workshop in Chelsea, Michigan

Biochar can be made from simple woody feedstock like fallen branches. Biochar enriches and regenerates soil. Biochar can greatly increase productivity of your garden. The use of biochar can also help to sequester atmospheric carbon.Experienced biochar producer 

Sheldon Smith  will lead us through a multifaceted learning event.

Build a new biochar production unit similar to the one pictured above.

Run another demonstration unit to make fresh biochar.

See how to organically “activate” biochar before adding to soil.

Take home some biochar with you at the end.

Where? On the grounds of the Friends Lake Cooperative Community.

 Down by the lake close to the beach! Bring snack food for lunch and your bathing suit if you like. See the earth oven that we built here in August.(We might be able to bake pizza in the earth oven but can’t promise.)
