Deer Park Haven Farm Work Party

Deer Park Haven Farm

Local permaculturalist Joe Bowman is hosting a work party at his farm!

Joe Bowman is pioneering terraced (ie mountainside) farming in BC!

He is also innovating rapid soil-building with his laying hens – they turn the usual multi-year process into only 8 months with their scratching and pooping! Go, chickens, go! 🐔

And he is working with a young man from Germany with a Master’s degree in Silviculture to explore forest farming.

It’s a new farm and Joe has big plans – right now less than 2 of his 11 acre mountainside farm are under cultivation. He wants to expand that this year with the construction of a big new terrace.

Other Work Party projects include building a deck on his wwoofer cabin, putting in a root cellar, copsing and, inevitably, rock picking.

There’s on-site camping plus there will be a BBQ and a live jam band.

Bring work gloves, a shovel and a big bag of leaves!
