Permaculture is a sustainable design system which seeks to develop a harmonious interrelationship between humans, plants, animals and the Earth. It’s underlying ethos is: people care, earth care, fair share. Permaculture is one of the most holistic, integrated systems analysis and design methodologies found in the world — and a highly practical concept which can be applied in urban and rural settings alike.
Get Down Get Dirty, this indepth, sixpart series of halfday workshops covers the fundamentals of Urban Permaculture/Sustainable Organic Growing as the seasons unfold. We will cover crop planning, seeds, seedlings, composting, soil health, propagation by cuttings, creating a balanced garden, various vegetables, herbs, fruit, wild and edible flower crops, seed saving, fourseason growing, harvesting, food processing, preservation and fermentation, and much more. In addition to acquiring solid gardening knowledges, we will be looking into where these fit in the current sociopolitical spectrum and concentrating on living lightly on the Earth. We combine theory with getting dirty, so please wear appropriate clothing!
