Thanks to PSU Permaculture Design Certificate teacher - Jon Brown's class for meeting the design challenge of irrigation in our new PSU Community Orchard. We will be berming and swaling around the baby trees to create micro-irrigation systems in a mesh-like pattern to slow down water as it passes through this student green space. In addition, we will be installing a poetry post to add to last year's VBC project - the PSU Peace On Earthbench (PSU POEM). Poetry post installation will be on May 25 and decoration of the pole will continue throughout the week. Here's a video describing Portland's poetry post movement & a photograph!
