This summer we will be taking our tents and crew into the heart of the western Balkan Mountains where we will join theArtmospheric Festival for a 4-day event that promises subliminal experiences for all. The festival is the home of some of the most talented electronic producers in Bulgaria and their music compliments the outstanding scenery of high mountain wildlife. The Permaship Team will be heading over with our library tent and tipi's and will be presenting a range of lectures and demonstrations through out the festival. As part of our demonstration we will begin a ultra low-maintenance forest garden at the site utilizing resources from the surroundings and using the so called "waste" of the festival to create fertility and abundance in this garden.
We will be bringing a diverse selection of books to the festival for our guests to browse at leisure. We will also have Permaculture books available for purchase including the "Permaculture Home Garden" that we have recently translated into Bulgarian.
- Expect lectures on various topics throughout the fest including talks by Mihail Kossev on CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Josh Aronson on Wild Edible Plants, Dimo Stefanov from WasteNo More Farm on commercial worm farming and writer and permaculture enthusiast Sava Chankov. The talks will be in Bulgarian and English and we will be available for questions throughout the fest.
- We will demonstrate worm farming, composting and hugelkutur; interactively teach how to plant a forest garden and maintain its progress throughout future festivals.
