Permaculture is a design process with a goal of establishing productive environments that provide for the needs of humans and wildlife. Through studying nature and applying those lessons to our designs we can create sustainable systems that provide food, shelter, energy, and waste recycling while building resilient communities. In this workshop, you will learn about the ethics and principles of Permaculture, as well as the basics of Permaculture design. Expect to leave this class with a better understanding of what Permaculture is and ways you can apply these lessons to your life, suggestions of plants to use in Permaculture systems, and resources for further education on this topic.
