Trumansburg, NY 14886 • May 29, 2019 5:30pm to 8:00pm

Join Sean Dembrosky of Edible Acres for a detailed look at human scale water management in the landscape. For 10 years he’s been slowly evolving how water moves, stores, shifts, releases, etc in a 6 acre challenging site. All with hand tools. We’ll see small scale ponds, silt traps, swales, contour raised beds and discuss the many techniques and approaches you can use in your landscape to gently and steadily suggest paths and resting spaces for water. The key focus with this talk is to help people feel empowered to start making small shifts with the tools they have and evolve the system over time. You can do all this! Cost: $15-40, sliding scale. No one turned away for lack of funds. This is part 1 of a 2 part series. Part 2 will discussing larger farm scale water management techniques.

Join Hammerstone School of Carpentry for Women and learn basic carpentry skills and build strength and self-sufficiency while connecting with others in the community!
