Join us for a fun and informative webinar where we take steps to live more sustainably, feed ourselves, have fun and help our planet. Milkwood Permaculture will introduce us to the incredible kingdom of fungi and how we can grow these amazing organisms at home and minimize our environmental footprint. Mushrooms have more in common with humans than plants. Nick Ritar, co-founder of Milkwood, will also discuss Milkwood’s many free online resources and courses including their upcoming Home Mushroom Cultivation and Permaculture Living. Farmwall will introduce us to their Ecosystem Indoor Farm. A beautiful table-top, zero-waste micro-farm which combines a fish tank with hydro and acquaponics to produce fresh greens and microgreens at home. An online community of like-minded people connect and learn how to grow nutritious greens together.
