Upcoming CRMPI workshops

From an email from Jerome:

For those of you interested, mark these dates are your calender for CRMPI's workshop series.

Sat May 14 - Forest Gardening - Learn how to turn your yard into an edible landscape with Forest Gardening. In this workshop you will learn how to harness the power of the perennial, create niches that promote beneficial insects, homes for birds, and support delicious fruit trees and much more. This holistic gardening method allows the garden to work with nature, stacking functions and supporting beneficial habitats all the while providing delicious edible fruits, nuts, berries, and veggies to us.

Sun May 15 - Greenhouse - Ever wonder if it is possible to grow bananas or papayas in your cold temperate, high altitude, Rocky Mountain backyard? With the power of a greenhouse equipped with Climate Battery technology it is. Come by CRMPI to see how Jerome Osentowski has managed to grow tropical food at elevation using the power of the sun and minimal energy. Learn how to store heat, harness the passive solar sun, and insulate your garden to extend your season successfully using design principles that are easy to implement. Become a greenhouse grower that encourages polyculture diversity for a wide range of food. With the power of the greenhouse, anything is possible.
