What do you learn in a two day Permaculture Workshop?
In this 2 Day Introduction, we will cover the Core Permaculture Principles along with strategies and practical design tools that will enable you to adopt energy-efficient practices, water reduction and nutrient cycling that will greatly enhance the growing conditions for your garden.
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, garden; farm or acreage all with the use of these Principles while at the same time, healing and regenerating the environment and your community.

Design Your Permaculture Garden and/or Food Forest
Sunday afternoon, we will get to work designing your yard. Here you will have the opportunity to apply many of the principals of design that we will have covered over the weekend.
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, regenerative design and Bio-mimicry.
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.
