Each week until Tour Time, Prairie Sage will be profiling one of the sites on our 2017 tours list. For more information on our complete tours listing, and to register, check out the 2017 Calgary Permaculture Tour page!
The Leaf Ninjas is back on our tour list this year the give us a guided walk-through of a very special site--one of the residences of The Ninjas themselves! Joining us for the August 12 tour date only, Dave and the gang welcome us right into one of their homes to show off their holistic approach to landscaping and food supply:
"We focus on a wholistic approach to the growing, supplying and installation of plants species and designs around ecological restoration, rainwater harvesting, edible landscaping and urban farming. It's our pleasure to work with developers, landscape architects, permaculture contractors, schools and municipalities. With our native and edible plant nursery 25 minutes East of Calgary, we’re able to grow the highest quality of point-sourced plants for public parks, restoration, erosion control, food production and private residences. Join us at one of our personal residences to explore our multiyear install including food forestry, annual vegetable production and rain water harvesting. Designed for beauty, high intensity production, pollination and function. Looking forward to having the Permaculture Tour once again come to one of our sites."
You can even order some very unique and hard to find edible plants from them online! For more information, follow this link:
