Kismet invites the public to a FREE presentation by major Caliente! Silent Auction donor Ethan Roland of AppleSeed Permaculture on Sunday, September 5th from 6 to 8pm in the Legends Room at Eastern Slope Inn Resort, 2760 Main Street, North Conway, NH.
Drawing from direct connection with nature, Permaculture gives us a set of principles and patterns for designing homes, businesses, and gardens that increase the health of the local ecosystem. Please join us for this introductory presentation on the abundant world of edible landscaping – from basic permaculture practices to specific fruits, berries, vegetables, and flowers that you can grow at your home. Join us to envision a low-maintenance landscape full of delicious food, and learn the first steps to creating it in your community.
