Introduction to Permaculture Workshop

This event has passed.

Permaculture is a philosophy and system of building, farming, gardening and landscaping conceived by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren in the 1970s in the wake of environmental problems left behind by previous centuries of colonization and more recent industrialization. Join landscape designer Jeremy Watts at Ploughshares to learn about simple permaculture concepts that can be used in your garden to improve the health of plants, increase food crop yields, and ultimately reduce labor. Topics covered will include: sheet mulching, resource optimization, functional planting, using diversity to create a healthy garden, and productive low maintenance landscaping.
