IDEAS FROM OUR VISIONING SESSION

If you would like help create The AREA by implementing your project or making any of the ideas below HAPPEN, please contact us!

Note for food producers/gardeners: A primary component of the permaculture garden at The AREA is to share knowledge.  A garden plot is free to any group whose proposal meets the minimum sharing requirement that incorporates meetings or workshops on site. Facility rental rates are $40.00/hr (discounts for full day rental and members).  We encourage your group to charge a small fee for your workshops and to place a prominent sign at your garden plot with a description of your gardening project.  Young and old visitors of The AREA are proving to be enthusiastic learners of all things growing.
