About The Event
Knowing how to grow food is a key skill for attaining a more resilient lifestyle. Understanding how to take an ecological approach to your food-growing systems allows you to not only be more sustainable, but also regenerative. Permaculture, as a whole-systems design methodology, provides a new lens through which we can gain a greater understanding of how we can provide for our needs while respecting the natural environment, using nature as our guide. In this full-day workshop, we’ll explore the fundamentals of Permaculture, how permaculture gardens build and support long-term resiliency, and how we can implement various strategies in our food-growing systems that build fertility, diversity and stability for long-term abundance. We’ll explore the fundamental importance of building living soil, and discuss which plants add value to our food-growing ecosystems.
