FINAL Cultivate ENG

Cultivate: The Permaculture Project

Growing food is a science, an art, and a spiritual practice.

La Solitude presents Cultivate—A hands-on, mindful gardening program that connects food gardening to cultivating the inner self.

Discover how to:

  • Grow food organically and sustainably
  • Engage in mindful, meditative observation and action
  • Create beauty.
  • Workshop 1: Build a Permaculture Huglkultur Bed.

Learn how to construct this ancient German  “hill garden” that mimics the action of how soil is built naturally in forests. This type of garden builds fertility over time and eventually hardly ever needs watering. It can be constructed of tree limbs and commonly available organic material.

You will learn hands-on skills, have time for reflection and contemplation, and enjoy a creative experience through garden journaling.
