OFRE volunteers have been working hard behind the scenes to plan some exciting projects for the 2013 season. Projects that involve you, our community!
DETAILS – the what, where & when
OFRE is pleased to announce an open design charrette to help in the design of community orchard and cider shack on an inner city site. The charrette will take place on Saturday March 16th 11-4 pm at Kasian Architecture Interior Design and Planning Ltd. office located in Commerce Place on Jasper ave and 102ndstreet (accessible by bus, lrt, parking on street available, but limited).
Why an orchard?
OFRE is working to build a community orchard and cider shack to help us reach our goals of providing education workshops and outreach to Edmontonians. We will be able to provide OFRE with a home and continue to build on the strength of partnerships.This bountiful partnership with the city will be fruitful for years to come!
The goal of the charrette is to provide design options and generate ideas for the construction of a permaculture based designed orchard with a small on site cider shack for the storage of tools and cider making equipment.
Who can participate? If you are passionate about design, have knowledge of permaculture principles or building technology, we want YOU to be a part of our design charrette!
