Permaculture in the garden

Permaculture in the garden

Food production and ecology come together in the permaculture concept of a food forest. Using nature as our template, these intentional ecosystems offer an abundance of food, medicine, habitat, and so much more. Please join us for this workshop and learn how you can apply permaculture principles in a high-yielding orchard with diverse understory and minimize your work over time by enhancing the relationships in your system. Learn design strategies for creating guilds, smooth succession, and ease in harvest. Attract wildlife and grow plants that add to fertility for your garden.
