Event Details

Permaculture is an ecological design system for creating sustainability in all aspects of our lives. This workshop will focus on land use and the principles of permaculture. It will help the participant to answer the question: How can I work with nature, not against it, in oder to create a yard/property that is more sustainable and easier to manage? Learn how to turn household waist into valuable resources; put an end to the back-breaking task of tilling; discover how to grow more food in less space; and reduce your use of landscape chemicals. Attendees are asked to bring a few photos/drawings/survey of their property. It will be helpful to have property lines, planting areas and trees designated on the visual. Participants will have an opportunity to develop permaculture ideas and solutions.

Level: Appropriate for all levels

Cost: $60/$48

Instrctor: Kathleen Fields, Instructor for Gateway Technical College

Organizer

Michael Fields Agricultural Institute

We are a non-profit organization with the mission to cultivate the ecological, social, economic, and spiritual vitality of food and farming systems through education, research, policy and market development.

We envision an ever-creative cultural process in which farmers and consumers create agricultural landscapes with healthy regional systems of land use, food production and distribution.

Since our founding in 1984, we have worked to realize this vision.

Please inquire if special arrangements may be needed.
