What is SOULPATCH?
SOULPATCH is an interactive garden space demonstrating a variety of growing methods and natural building techniques. Initially created as engaging interactive educational programing at Summer Camp Music Festival, the development of SOULPATCH was initiated to evolve over time. The original plan still stands, to complete enough basic infrastructure to transition the once-a-year focus into an outdoor classroom setting that can facilitate weekend workshops and eventually permaculture design courses. The project has arrived at the end of Phase 2, and is now launching Phase 3, inviting neighboring organizations and collaborators from the Midwest region to participate in a range of ways including the expansion of educational offerings.
The SOULPATCH mission is to openly collaborate with educators, organizations and businesses to demonstrate a variety of growing methods, natural building techniques, and permaculture systems. Our mission exists to support a vision of strong communities engaged in the social and economic health of local bioregional food culture.
