​HUGELKULTURE: PERMACULTURE RAISED BED WORKSHOP
Saturday, June 26
1:00 PM @ MUD member's garden*
Instructor: Paul Wheaton, master gardener & permaculture instructor
Pre-registration recommended; contact MUD office or follow link below.

Hugelkultur is a German word pronounced "hoogle culture". It is a permaculture technique which takes the concepts of raised beds to the max! Hugelkultur makes all the benefits of a compost pile directly accessible to your garden plants, while simultaneously drastically reducing the amount of water required for successful gardening.

This hands-on workshop provides participants with start-to-finish experience making a raised bed filled with rotten wood and soil. This results in a garden bed loaded with organic material, nutrients, and air pockets for plant roots. The wood decomposes over time, shifting the soil and allowing for a low-till or no-till approach, and sustains an increased soil temperature as it breaks down. All that rotten wood retains a high volume of water, too, enabling you to reduce garden water requirements to almost nothing.

Join MUD & Paul Wheaton to learn the nuances of building a hugelkultur bed that will save you time, effort, and water, and result in nutrient rich vegetables or extraordinarily happy ornamentals into the foreseeable future!

Wear clothes that can get dirty, bring work gloves, and plan to do some digging if you want the full experience. Participants are encouraged to engage in the hands-on work, but welcome to observe if physically unable to participate.

Follow this link (http://mudproject.ning.com/page/workshop-preregistration

) to register online. Or call 721-7513 or email info@mudproject.org.

$10 MUD members/$20 non-members
Scholarships are available. Contact MUD office for scholarship information.

Recycled Art & Craft Class "Spirit Dolls & Wish Bottles"

Description  Sat, July 10, 1:30pm – 4:00pm

Stop in after the Farmers Market & Create a Craft Project!

What are Spirit Dolls & Wish Bottles?
They are small inspirational creations made from old bottles & other post consumer goods & crafting scraps.

A guided meditation helps you assists you in choosing the right materials to create your own uniquely meaningful keepsake.

This is so much more than a craft, you can think of them as a piece of art as well as a piece of yourself or your processes. Whether a gift for someone else , an inspirational tool, a symbol of your heart's desire or a reminder of those we have lost, theses creations are wonderful and decorative pieces that everyone will love!

The size is determined by the size of the bottle you use. This workshop allows you to produce amazing and wonderful results alone or as a family.


Cost is $40 includes materials
VENUE: Eternal Springs Healing Center above Meadowsweet, next to Bernice's 180 s 3rd St w Missoula ,
CALL TO REGISTER 406-240-6182

Subject: Sustainable Communities Partnership Live Chat



[Please distribute]



Hi folks –



On Thursday, July 15th the White House Office of Urban Affairs will host a live chat with the leadership of the Sustainable Communities Partnership, an unprecedented agreement between HUD, Transportation, and EPA to coordinate federal housing, transportation, and environmental investments. A part of President Obama's broader urban and metropolitan agenda, the partnership, aims to break down traditional silos and craft federal programs and policies that take a more collaborative and holistic approach to better respond to the needs of communities.



Last month, the Partnership released a joint notice of funding availability (NOFA) – $35 million in TIGER II Planning grants and $40 million in Sustainable Community Challenge grants – for local planning activities that integrate transportation, housing, and economic development. And, HUD also announced $100 million in funding for Sustainable Communities Regional Planning grant program that will support regional planning efforts that integrate housing, land use, economic development, and transportation.



We invite you to join us for a live discussion on Sustainable Communities – the progress they’ve made, the funding programs available, and what the future of the partnership looks like – at www.whitehouse.gov/live

on July 15th at 2:00pm EST or you can submit questions in advance to Planetizen

.



What:   Sustainable Communities Live Chat

Who:     Shelley Poticha, Director of the Office of Sustainable Housing and Communities, HUD

Beth Osborne, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Policy, Department of Transportation

Tim Torma, Deputy Director of the Office of Sustainable Communities, EPA

Moderated by Derek Douglas, Special Assistant to the President on Urban Policy, White House



When: 2:00PM EST, Thursday, July 15, 2010

How:     Watch and participate at www.whitehouse.gov/live


Send questions in advance to Planetizen : http://www.planetizen.com/node/44996

.



For more information on the partnership, read their latest blog that summarizes their work and accomplishments

Not actually a Permies event but I decided to add them because of new efforts to be more green.
