Speaker: Paula Anderson
Location: Trinity United Church
Time: 6:15pm for carpool
On Site Visit We have been invited to visit the market and personal gardens of Paula Anderson, from Peterborough Green Up. At our February meeting, Paula introduced us to permaculture as related to improving the vegetables and fruits grown in our gardens. This on-site tour will give us a chance to see how Paula puts her teachings to practical use.
Members will meet at Trinity United Church at 6:15 p.m. to carpool. Directions will be sent out in the May newsletter for those who wish to meet us at the site.
Paula works part time for Peterborough Green Up, as well as running a 2 acre market garden full of organic vegetables. The vegetables are sold at the Peterborough Downtown Farmer's Market and to By the Bushel Community Food Cooperative in Peterborough, where people can access weekly and monthly baskets of fresh local food produce and other farm products.
Paula is working on her PhD focusing on Indigenous Food Systems and Food Sovereignty and also teaches in Trent University's Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Program.
