A well made compost is as good as gold when you want your garden to thrive with healthy plants and nutrient rich produce, but compost can easily go wrong with the wrong recipe or the wrong conditions. Permaculture educator, Lichen June, of the NW Permaculture Institute, teaches this fun and fact filled class. Learn about soil structure and function, how plants eat, pH effect on available nutrients, weeds as indicators and paramedics, compost recipe and care, and how to adjust that recipe when things go wrong or when you need to speed up the process. $15 Silverton Food Co-op members, $20 general.

Points Beyond is an intentional community of private homes clustered around shared space. Each single family home has traditional amenities, including a private kitchen. Our shared spaces will feature a common house, which includes a large kitchen and dining area, laundry, and recreational spaces. We will also have a workshop with added guest quarters, and carports at both ends of the property. Shared outdoor space includes parking, walkways, open space, and gardens. Community members also share resources like tools, books, and recreational equipment. Households have independent incomes and private lives, but neighbors collaboratively plan and manage community activities and shared spaces.”
