INTRO TO PERMACULTURE WORKSHOP
September 10, 2011
With Andrew & Khaiti French at LTD Farm
Do you want to live a more sustainable life? Have you heard about Permaculture and wondered what it was all about? Are you looking for some practical methods to reduce your ecological footprint and grow delicious food at home?
Come out & learn about the basic principles of Permaculture, a comprehensive design-centered approach to all aspects of sustainable living.
We will discuss fruit and nut tree planting, mushroom production, berms and swales, sheet mulching, pastured poultry, garden siting and design, composting, cover crops, and more. The purpose of this workshop is to give you an understanding of the ethics and principles of permaculture, some techniques and strategies to integrate permaculture into your life right now, and resources to continue your permaculture education. A large portion of the day will be set aside for field work. Be prepared to get your hands dirty and your mind full of new ideas. This is a unique opportunity to learn about this exciting new field on a real working permaculture farm.
We will provide a basic lunch made with on-farm organic ingredients. Please bring gloves, bug spray, water container, hat, work boots, shovels, snacks, and any other gear that will keep you comfortable outside.
