April 13 & 14, 2019
Workshop is Sold Out! Thank you for your interest. This workshop will be offered again September 2019. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
In this 2 Day Workshop, we will cover the core principles of permaculture along with strategies and practical design tools that will provide you with the knowledge to transform your yard/acreage/farm into a healthy, growing system.
Over the course of the weekend, we will explore design elements that are energy-efficient, maximize water retention, reduce workload, and enhance the nutrient cycle all geared towards improving the growing conditions for your garden and food forest. An inspirational journey that will help you take the next steps in transforming your own property into that oasis of green that you have always dreamt of.
We will talk about soil, composting, soil amendments, how to wake up our gardens and how to put them to bed in the fall.
You will Gain Knowledge on How-To:
Create a productive garden
Capture rainwater and re-hydrate your soil
Design and Build Rainwater Harvesting Systems
Increase your garden production through Companion Planting and Polycultures
Plant and utilize Green manure crops and pulses
Build healthy Compost
Upcycle waste streams
Plus, will have lots we of fun with community building exercises, discussions and games.
It is amazing how easy it is to learn How to Work with Nature; by adopting a new vision and perspective of the world, you can save thousands of dollars when it comes to designing your home and garden, regenerating the environment and even your community.
Permaculture Principles, Ethics and Design are a path forward to working with the natural rhythm of the earth and its systems. Principles that work with this natural balance, eliminate that business; providing a healthy ebb and a flow to our lives. Observation, patterning and placement help us to design the work out of the system. Whew! Let’s hear it for less work, more vegetables, a healthy garden and time for ourselves!
By observing key ecological relationships, we can mimic and apply these beneficial relationships in the design of systems that serve humans while helping to restore the natural world.
Designing our Garden: Sunday afternoon, we will get down to work designing your yard. Here you will have the opportunity to apply many of the principals of design that we will have covered and discussed over the weekend. I will be there to help you with every step.
Course Material & Follow-up:
At the end of the weekend, you will be provided with a copy of the course material along with a resource list of books, ideas, videos and podcasts to further your discovery into the world of permaculture and a healthy and sustainable future. Plus, I invite you to book a follow-up phone call at some point this growing season to recap any information that you are curious about or would like to dig further. Your success is my reward!
What Is Permaculture?
Permaculture is a design science that is guided by ethics and inspired by nature
A forward-thinking design system based on principles found in nature. Its purpose is to create living environments that are harmonious, sustainable and productive, while greatly reducing the work and energy required to maintain them.
