Summertime is ripe for a field trip! Transition Culver City will visit the Funkmeyer New Reality Garden – a lovely example of an urban permaculture oasis. Learn about grey water systems and grow our community. Your hosts will Jenny & Otis Funkmeyer in collaboration with Transition Culver City. on Sunday June 26, 2016 from 3-5pm $15 at The Funkmeyer Gardens, 2025-2033 South Spaulding Ave., LA 90016. Buy tickets online at www.Parallel.University or rsvp: [email protected] and pay at the door.
See six different types of grey water systems at work. Learn how to channel 40 gallons of water from the washing machine to water your yard. This water supplies lots of fruit trees – plum, apricot, mulberry, cherry, cherimoya, mango – sample some fruits directly from the trees. Learn about a magical ubiquitous substance universally loved by all the plants. If it’s a really hot day, you can take a dip in the Funkmeyers’ outdoor bath tub. The garden also nurtures people with an internship program – which in turn nurtures the garden. It’s a big happy cycle!
Jenny and Otis Funkmeyer, guardians of the garden, along with their interns, will lead you on a tour of the property and share insights about transition into a more sustainable living.
