356 Horn Lane in the River Road Neighborhood
This is the second of a once a month series at Dharmalaya that describe various aspects of transforming suburbia. Check back to the COS website for December, January, February and March presentations.
A panel of three home owners who live in the River Road Neighborhood are making big changes to their properties.
Nick bought a duplex house less than a year ago and is already well on his way. Most of the property is in the back yard where he plans myco remediation, a hugel culture and water feature, green house, trellises, screening for privacy, fruit and nut trees. The front yard garden is taking shape.
Liz and Aaron have also started their project in the past year. They have chickens, raised beds, a cob wood fired pizza oven and plans for cultivating the smaller front yard.
Mark has been going full bore for 3 years on his one acre property. A year ago, he took out the “U” part of the driveway making a much larger part of his front yard productive with winter squash, corn, sun chokes and small chestnut trees. In the back is a large green house, chickens, a sheltered work area, storage space, expanding garden beds, “industrial scale” worm composting and a lot more happening.
All three will show and tell what they are doing with their properties, why they are making these changes and what they are learning.
This is a great chance to meet home owners in the act of transforming their properties and learn from their experiences.
Feel free to invite others to the companion presentations. Each $5 donation to the talks will receive a choice of three different colorful and educational posters about greening suburbia. Everyone is welcome to attend.
