Permaculture Demonstration Site
Open Garden Day
110 Delaware Ave., Ithaca NY
Steve Austin will open up his garden on Sunday September 9, 2012 from 9 AM to 4 PM for one last visit before Fall sets in.
This diverse garden oasis is nestled into the landscape with a timber framed pergola, terraced edible plant guilds, a constructed natural stream, two ponds, a stone patio, and a four season greenhouse. Part of the energy systems includes PV panels on the garden pergola that let light shine through. In both the outdoor ponds and the small greenhouse food is grown using “Aquaponics” with an additional Aquaculture system in the basement. All are part of an integrative and sustainable design system known as Permaculture.
