I am the organizer of a new Catholic Urban farming group in Denver, The Saint Isidore Society. We see God as the great designer of the Universe, and try to copy His designs in our work. Permaculture allows us to do this, becoming sub-creators, or under gardeners, in His garden, instead of obliterating His plans with monoculture fields and parking lots.
We are currently preparing an urban farm site in Lakewood, which will eventually contain intensive and sheet mulched gardens, chickens, an orchard, a solargreenhouse, bees, and aquaponics. We are also setting up a seed library and an agricultural books library, and building top bar beehives out of scrap wood for member's gardens, and eventually to sell, offsetting the costs of the group.
We have a lot of other projects planned for the future, including educational field trips.
Our website is Saint Isidore Society There you can find meeting dates, notes from past meetings, and more about us, and can contact us with comments or questions.
Though this is a Catholic Group, and will be run on Catholic principles, anyone can join who holds these two basic principles; That all human life is Sacred, and That the the earth is to be respected and cared for, but not worshiped.
