Permaculture Park Project plants find winter home in Mayor’s office

This Saturday will mark the final work party of 2014 at Ithaca’s Permaculture Park Project located at Baker Park. Over 20 Cornell students lead by community volunteers will descend on the park and nearby INHS housing complex Cascadilla Green to tidy up and put gardens to bed for the winter. In the meantime, Cornell Cooperative Extension staffers Chrys Gardener and Josh Dolan who have spearheaded the project,are scrambling to find winter homes for several tropical fruiting plants that were generously donated by local resident and permaculture aficionado Steve Austin. One of these plants will find a new home tomorrow. On Thursday, October 23 at 11pm Chrys and Josh will delivery a seven foot tall banana to the mayors office, go over winter care instructions with he and his staff and give him a final update on the tremendous progress that has been made at the park during it’s first full growing season.
