Join Jessica Robertson from Wild Craft Permaculture and Michael Schimp from Three Acre Permaculture to learn about this approach to food and medicine production, with a focus on perennial plants and holistic system design.
This FREE, in-depth, full-day course will introduce you to the concept and theory of permaculture, and provide you with the practical tools to start applying it in your garden, your life and your community.
This workshop is suitable for people who attended the Permaculture 101 webinar in addition to those who have no prior permaculture training. Permaculture is inspired by the deep observation of natural systems. It does not seek to recreate them, but to learn from them and apply ecological principles to the design of human systems. Activities and exercises throughout the day will teach you to think and approach problems with a regenerative mindset.
