Perma Potuck Goes Wild!
When: Saturday May 28 4:00 – 7:00 pm
Where: RSVP to say you are coming and we will send you the address.
As part of the Wild About Saskatoon NatureCity Festival (http://www.wildaboutsaskatoon.org/), we are hosting our monthly gathering in the back yard of one of our 2015 permablitz hosts. We will share some food and conversation, see how a permaculture design has evolved over the course of a year, identify some native plants and plant some more native plant seeds.
PermaSask will provide beef and lentil burgers and buns. Please bring your own side dish to share and BYOB.
Permaculture Saskatchewan members will also share their thoughts on what permaculture is and how permaculture design endeavours to reconcile and change our relationship [for the better] with the land.
If you have plants and seeds that you’d like to share, bring them along for a plant and seed swap.
(and indicate beef or lentil burgers)
by May 25,
and we will send you the address.
The 2016 permablitz season is about to begin.
On Sunday May 1 we’ll gather in a front yard in the Meadowgreen neighbourhood to dig swales for water catchment, prepare planting beds for herbs, flowers, vegetables, berry bushes and native seeds, and retrofit some rain barrels.
If you would like to volunteer or would like more information please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Permablitzes are a great way to learn about permaculture design in a hands on way. No experience necessary. There’s a variety of jobs to do whatever you experience or physical ability.

Eat, Write and Be Merry
Wednesday March 16
6:00 pm to 9:30 pm
Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre – upstairs
202 Avenue C South
Have you been meaning to write your City Councillor about an issue close to your heart but keep putting it off or don’t know quite how to get started? Well procrastinate no more. We’ve come up with a few templates for letters close to our hearts which you can use to get yourself started. The topics we’ve chosen are rainwater management in the city, active transportation in the city and a long-time favourite back yard chickens in the city.
So bring a food dish to share for the potluck and a pen and paper or your laptop to write with. If you are not sure who the councillor is for your ward, we can show you where to look that up, as well as where you can submit an email to him or her online.
We will meet upstairs at the Saskatoon Food Bank and Learning Centre.
Doors open at 6:00 pm.
We’ll eat around 6:30.
We’ll clean-up and should be ready to start letter writing by 7:30.
We will go through a few tips for letter writing, do an overview of the letters, and then set right down and write a letter or two.
While we have come up with three issues that we think are important, feel free to come with other ideas.
