Beginning in March, we are returning to the Camden Adult Education program to offer an 8 hour lecture and discussion series introducing permaculture design. This is a super affordable class to get an introduction to permaculture design and how to apply it in your life and garden!
Permaculture is a design system and set of techniques for creating resilient human habitats and healthy ecosystems. It is modeled on ecological principles and offers a design methodology for water, access, shelter, food production, culture and economics. In this abbreviated course students will gain a strong foundation for applying permaculture ethics and design principles. We will cover topics including: a permaculture design process, forest gardens and perennial polycultures, water management, earthworks, pattern literacy, and workflow management. We will also visit a local demonstration site in the spring to see permaculture in action! Registration $35. 4 weeks 6:00-8:00 p.m. Begins Tues 3/6 and runs through Tues 3/27.
