What you'll do

We'll dig receiver holes, install the arbor posts, tamp them down, tie in the cross-pieces and lengthwise connectors, then high-five each other and call it a day. Those who wish can also learn and then practice their debarking skills. All tools provided on-site. Interested participants (all are invited!) can join in the wood-fired hot tub afterwards to relax and celebrate after a good time of rewarding hard work.

I have been practicing and perfecting our permaculture approach to homesteading for the past twenty years. After many failures and a growing number of successes, things have finally come together to result in a very successful model for us and others to follow. It's amazing to see what can be done on a 0.17 acre, south-facing urban lot. TONS! And our latest venture, after seeing hundreds of these while on a caving trip in rural Romania, is to install a grape arbor over our driveway. Come and learn how to do so, how to plan for success from the outset, and how to avoid the common pitfalls that so many (including Yours Truly) have fallen victim to. Plus, we'll have some nice homemade mead after we finish!

Where you'll be

We'll do this at my house - we'll work in a tour beforehand of the varied permaculture activities we do here: maple syrup making, fruit trees, grape vines, kitchen gardens, mead and wine making, sea salt production...homemade wood-fired hot tub and sauna...might be some more but that's all I can think of now...
