Instructor: Laura Denyes
A FREE presentation about an often FREE building material.
Urbanite!! Plug into the waste stream. Reverse waste, meet city codes, save money and create permeable pathways... all at once! Urban farmers Laura Denyes and Dave Hamilton discovered that a seeming problem presented a new opportunity. In Laura's words, "All it took was a city code violation to get us motivated to broaden the horizons of our city officials. No, I won't pave my driveway, but I will dust-proof it."
Come find out what urbanite is, how to find, use and handle it. Dave and Laura turned their boring, non-permeable driveway into a beautiful, functional mosaic. Get inspiration and learn from those who took sledgehammers and city codes into their own hands.
Instructor Laura Denyes and her husband Dave Hamilton run Wish We Had Acres, an urban farm project that pursues a lifestyle that embraces Food as Medicine. Starting with a postage stamp-sized lot and 1 goat, after 4 years, they now have a one acre urban farm with goats, chickens, turkeys and ducks, and vegetables.

On the light-rail, it is accessible from E Washington and the intersection at 12thSt. The offices are set back from the street, so turn when you see 1112 on a large beige wall.
