Edible Garden Group – Monday, September 10th at 7 PM

Join the Greater Newburyport Edible Garden Group at Chaffee Monell’s for a fascinating tour of the systems he has created at his home for food growing, water and energy conservation.

The tour will highlight the solar heat harvester he built for dehydrating food in the summer and heating the house in the winter. Be sure to check out this slideshow preview

The tour will begin at 7 PM at 7 Maplewood Avenue in Amesbury.

The Edible Garden Group was formed by community members who are interested in getting together to learn and share information about sustainable food growing – veggies, fruits, nuts. The meetings are focused on building community resilience through increasing the availability of safe, nutritious, sustainably-grown local food.
