Week 5 – Fall
Permaculture: Steve’s goal is for students to peruse the book and select 5 site profiles that are a good ecological fit for growing grapes, especially Vitis vinifera species. Be prepared to explain why you think each of your chosen sites is a good fit for grapes. Also read page 153 on Terracing and reflect on how terracing may help to ‘dry farm’ grapes. Dry farming is discussed in the Naked Wine text as a reference point on this topic.
