Sunrise Ranch is home to the most mature Permaculture Forest in Colorado! Check out this video from last year’s Action Day:
Swales slow and sink the water – this will involve digging so bring your shovels and work gloves.
Old structures give way to new.. we’ll remove some of the old fencing that divided the land.
**Guilds & Pathways**
Following the natural topography and flow, we will create new plant guilds and establish the walkways between them.
The cob oven built last year is ready for upgrades with natural plaster and we’ll build a roof to protect it.
**Pruning & Harvesting**
Loppers and Trimmers! The forest has food to be picked and limbs to be trimmed, connect with the plants and learn how to tend them by doing it with .us.
Find info below about the musical artists participating in the Action Day in service to our collective work then taking the stage at ARISE:
Wildlight is the space between the notes, the earth’s undulating pulse, the modern echoes of ancient rhythms. It is a sound that will spark your body into motion and swing your soul into flight. An unlikely pairing of a folk songwriter and an electronic music composer has yielded a new sound; music that gracefully traverses human emotions, but can also jumpstart a party into a syncopated bounce.
While vocalist Ayla Nereo delicately crafts songs that climb and tumble through a landscape of crescendos and harmonies, seasoned composer David Sugalski (aka The Polish Ambassador) keeps the beats and bass rooted deep in the subatomic layers of the earth.
