We welcome Ashley of Broadfork Permaculture back to our Community Room for their new presentation, Permaculture in Your Backyard. You can apply Permaculture Design to any backyard, big or small, sunny or shady. Ashley uses examples from his projects around the Pioneer Valley to show how you can use Permaculture Design to grow food, nourish a healthy ecosystem, and build a deeper relationship with your land. His explanation of the design process, specific examples, and knowledge of design strategies helps you focus in on your goals, learn useful strategies, and creatively problem-solve in your landscape.

The class has a moderate pace and is best suited for those with some prior exposure to yoga, but anyone interested is encouraged to attend.
Class is from 5:45-6:45, but please arrive a little early to set up, stretch and settle in. People should bring their own mats and any other props if they have them. Class space is limited. Please contact Alyse Bynum at email@example.com for registration or more information.
RUSH, led by Roger Conant, is a group that meets monthly, almost always in the Pelham Library's community room, to sing! Nobody here is a trained singer, there are no "try-outs," this is just people who like to sing together. It's very informal, very fun, and open to everybody who likes to sing. They often use the famous Rise Up Singing book created by Peter and Annie Blood-Patterson, our neighbors in Amherst. Visit http://www.sconant.net/rush/ to sign up for upcoming singalongs.
The Pelham Library is a wireless hotspot!
Thank you to Comcast for this free service to the community.
