Presented By: Heartwater Farm
- Heartwater Farm, 6.5 miles north of Glendale, Utah.
Visit an emerging permaculture design project, sustainable farm and off-grid solar powered home that integrates wild habitat with intensive agriculture while building topsoil. Tour two growing domes where John and Rhonda raise most of their food year round. Walk along the “heart” waters of the Virgin River through a wetland restoration project with ponds and peat fen. Learn about wild edible and medicinal plants and sample a wild-crafted herb tea.
Bring hiking shoes that may get wet, drinking water, and pack a lunch if desired. Light refreshments will be served. Learn about permaculture basics, food forests, alley cropping on swales, holistic animal systems and building a more sustainable world locally. Questions are welcome! www.heartwaterfarm.com
