Come see what we're up to! We will meet at our largest backyard garden in Astoria, Queens, and talk about the construction and maintenance over a few seasons. Such topics here will include soil testing for heavy metals, the benefits of raised wooden garden beds, drip irrigation and sprinkler systems, considering shading, and crop selection and rotation. We will walk from this garden to the Hellgate main site a few blocks away where we will be able to see active bee hives, a chicken coop with a dozen or so laying hens, a perennial permaculture garden with fruit trees and shrubs, a solar dehydrator, a small intensive green roof, and much more! We will end on our social deck with a sampling of some of our small batch products and the opportunity for purchase.
Tours are $15 per person. We will send the meeting address by email upon receipt of your RSVP.
