Wings Over the Rockies Event
Walk – Groundswell Community Greenhouse & Garden with Dale Wilker, the soil whisperer
This Greenhouse Tour will provide you with fresh insight on the progress being made to use gardening as a profoundly important way to deal with CLIMATE CHANGE. You will see how Groundswell is harnessing nature to be green in new ways. Using permaculture methods to remove all chemical use (even organic) and reducing water usage, while increasing the hardiness of plants and the amount of produce.
You’ll enjoy the engineering of the greenhouse and the lushness of the garden. You will be refreshed with a glass of herb ice tea and tips on food as medicine.
Dale Wilker was one of the founding members of Groundswell Network Society and responsible for the state of the art greenhouse whose technology was well ahead of its time. His passion to grow food in a way that was healthy for people and healthy for the environment, has led a huge change through the valley.
