Intro to Permaculture
Introduction to Permaculture

Sunday, March 25 10:00- 12:30 at Beacon Food Forest

Become familiar with basics of Permaculture, known as "permanent agriculture" and "permanent culture." It is a method of designing systems and things that will last, replenish themselves, and create abundance. Permaculture design is used to create places and structures that regenerate food, clean water, energy, biodiversity, and building materials, used by anyone, anywhere.

We will explore ethics, principles, zones, sectors, and the concept of integrating these in order to create appropriate, resilient design. We will also cover the practice of site analysis. After teaching these basics we will practice observing and take an extended site tour of the Beacon Food Forest with hands-on activites Teachers are Jacqueline Cramer and Kimberly Leeper, both permaculture landscape and education professionals, who for many years have been creating abundant, regenerative, permaculture spaces for individuals and community.

-Price: $35/person with sliding scale
