Introduction to Permaculture: Resilient Ecological Design

Come join us on our thriving farm for an introductory workshop on permaculture design! Permaculture is a set of social and agricultural design principles that will give you the tools to transform your garden space. You will leave the class with a basic design that you’ve created for your garden, home, office, or school and an understanding of how permaculture can be applied beyond the garden.
Tickets are $20 for this workshop. Participants are invited to eat lunch on the farm and stay from 1-5 pm for our farm tour and volunteer work party!
Accessibility: This event is ADA accessible and will be held in the Yurt and on ADA accessible pathways. FM receivers are available for those hard of hearing. There will be heat in the yurt. This event is not scent-free.
