Cold temperatures = reflections on projects of new projects for 2012

Woke up to 3degrees today... not exactly ideal for outdoor work. Rather, a perfect opportunity to look back at last year and start booking the 2012 workshop schedule and to do list for 2012. 
 One of 2011's most interesting jobs was the build out of heirloom veggie gardens at a homestead in Raymond, Maine.  I t blend traditional garden and permaculture design ... and a fantastic yield of food for a small first year plot.
 The project also encompassed fruit tree plantings, a gray water wash basin setup, and compost bins
Another project that involved design and installation was in Portland, Maine.  This is an evolving project with a home owner that is implementing a permaculture plan on a small urban lot.
This project included hardscaping, rain barrel installation, sheetmulched beds, compost bins, additional raised beds and hoophouse, as well fencing (do to a spunky ground hog population!)

2012 has already started with a flurry of activity... the workshop schedule at the Urban Farm Fermentory is filling in nicely.
Check out the available classes here:

Happy New Year!
