Permaculture Short course at Camden Adult Ed in May

Spring is here as we start planting out our seedlings and planting our beds.  Good garden design that integrates both perennials and annuals is an important part of having success over the growing season.  Of course, sustainability is on everyone’s mind these days, and so with that in mind I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be teaching another Introduction to Permaculture course through Camden Adult Ed.  We will focus on the subjects of goals for the garden, design of the garden, and sustainability in the garden and how that connects to the rest of society.

Permaculture – the Art of Ecological Design

Permaculture is a design system and set of techniques for creating resilient human habitats and healthy ecosystems.  It is modeled on ecological principles and takes into account food production, shelter, energy, water, wellness, community, culture and economics.  In this abbreviated course students will gain familiarity with concepts used to design permaculture garden systems.  They will leave with a strong foundation for applying permaculture ethics, strategies and techniques. The instructor will discuss topics including forest gardens, water management, earthworks, pattern literacy, and garden management.   Registration is $25. 4 weeks on Wednesday evenings 6:00-8:00 p.m. Begins Wed 5/2 CHRHS Rm 223 Class size is limited to 12 so register early!
