Hi TimeBankers! It's spring, which means it's time to start thinking about gardening! We've got an exciting and expanded garden project in the works for this season called Everywhere Gardens: The People's Produce. The project involves everything from building gardens to sharing land for gardening to produce collection and re-distribution. It's going to be awesome and we're actively planning and learning now. Join us!

Every Sunday afternoon, 2-5pm, the MAW at the Social Justice Center (1202 Williamson) will host some form of Sunday Skool.

At 2pm we continue our series on the Radical History and Future of Agri-Culture, hosted by Free Skool each Sunday in March (and possibly beyond).

You Are What You Eat! - Radical History of Agri-Culture Discussion!  A spring 2019 Madison Free Skool series.  Join us to talk about the amazing evolution and future trajectory of our food/farm system!  

Topic for Sunday March 24 - Permaculture. With Sue Hessel and other members of the Madison Area Permaculture Guild.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Permaculture is a set of design principles centered around whole systems thinking simulating or directly utilizing the patterns and resilient features observed in natural ecosystems. It uses these principles in a growing number of fields from regenerative agriculturerewildingcommunity, and organizational design and development.

3-3:30 is a time to mingle and chat.

From 3:30-5pm we host hands-on workshops related to building our collective Everywhere Gardens: The People's Produce project.  We’re working on making this project a reality, and holding weekly workshops. This week includes planting seeds! 

Hope you can join us for Sunday Skool!
