Permaculture Meet-up at Queen Mountain Homestead

March 29 @ 4:00 pm 7:00 pm

Interests at your site: gardens, orchards, silvoculture, peri-urban homesteading, water management, community, chickens

Site description: Queen Mountain Homestead (QHM) is an 8-acre intergenerational family home and educational demonstration site nestled on the western flank of Bellingham’s Queen Mountain.  In the spring of 2016, after a decade+ of designing, building and maintaining permaculture landscapes across Washington (and internationally), we became the designer-stewards of our forever home.

Over the last 8 years, we have practiced phased implementation of abundant gardens and orchards; operated a silviculture system with American Guinea Hogs and a large flock of chickens; managed beautiful native forests dealing with climate change; and grown and expanded a strong human community of family and friends. 

With a background in urban landscaping and gardening, our site offers not only tangible examples for small scale rural homesteading, but also showcases techniques appropriate for urban and suburban backyards.

Site tour from 4pm-5:30pm; Potluck from 5:30-7pm
