About the event
FREE Fun-filled camping weekend at a Permaculture Farm in Lake County! Fabulous, knowlegeable folks from the Forest Reciprocity Group will be leading the activities.
The PROJECTS: We will be hopping about on a variety of projects, including converting a chicken coop and run area to a COMPOSTING TOILET and Screened-in GARDEN area! Should be a lot of fun! Our strategy on the composting toilet, we are aiming to make a high-end composter, complete with fan and turner (like the expensive indoor ones ~ DIY-style). Our chicken coop will be converted to an outdoor bathroom in the community campfire area in 2 days! We will also install a small sink and frame it in with scrap wood, maybe even cob it up!
Simultaneously, will be converting the chicken run area to a garden area for guests to enjoy pick herbs, chill under fruiting trees etc. Depending on attendance and interest, we will also consider:
Natural paint mini-workshop, painting an earthen pizza oven
Mini-batch cob workshop, making a bird bath or cobbing in the bathroom sink
Mini-workshop on lime plasters, plastering the dog house
Mini-workshop & lecture on tending the forest (oak savannah)
In the evening hours we will present about Forest Reciprocity Group's activities and goals in our rural communities ~ Lake Mendocino and Humbolt Counties. Story-telling and fireside chat! Building and strengthening our communities through relations, working together, learning together and playing together!
