Permaculture for the Home Gardener
This permaculture course, taught by local permaculture teacher and practitioner Rachel Economy, will inspire you to bring the transformative principles of permaculture into your own home garden and life.
We live in a critical moment: our biosphere is straining to support seven billion+ people; communal structures are failing to meet the basic needs of millions; the divide between those who have and those who don’t grows ever larger. Permaculture provides the tools to build regenerative communities grounded in sustainability, justice and love. This course will inspire you to use these tools in your own garden and beyond.
Permaculture has been defined as “a holistic approach to landscape design and human culture, integrating several disciplines including biology, ecology, geography, agriculture, architecture, appropriate technology, and community building.” This course will integrate each of these fields, and include lectures, discussions, hands-on projects, and community building activities.
