Permaculture is care of the earth and care of people. It offers a way to embrace nature and have her embrace us. The Permaculture Primer Class looks at the basics of Permaculture and how to get started growing food sustainably in the suburbs.
See how Karen has applied these principles in her suburban garden and be inspired to make the best use of resources such as rainwater and grey water. Get to know some unusual plants from Karen’s garden to add to your own urban Food Forest.
The class is primarily an outdoor class using Karen’s garden as the classroom. See the synergy of the plants growing together, supporting each other. Find out what works and what doesn’t.
Plan to be outside for the class and dress appropriately, dress warmly with rain protection and sturdy boots for winter and bring sunhats and sunscreen as well as bottled water for summer. Umbrellas are not recommended.
