Description

What is permaculture?

To put it simply, it is a design science that aims to create a permanent culture, a way of caring for the earth and each other (every living being) that can continue indefinitely.

Join Eric Lewis for an introductory talk on permaculture.This class will be a broad overview of permaculture, it's history, its relevance, and its approaches. If you have never heard of permaculture, or have heard the word but still don't quite understand fully what it is and why it's so important, this class will be a great way to get up to speed. If you have a basic understanding, this class will offer some fresh perspectives and touch on some of the details as to how we may apply this design science in a suburban/rural context. These same design principles can be applied anywhere in the world to increase biodiversity, soil fertility and deepen the connection between people and plants.

In this relatively short class we will cover:

  • Soil building basics
  • The power of perennial vegetables
  • Forest gardens for the future
  • Rainwater catchment
  • Fungal allies
  • And much more!

Feel free to record audio or video, and invite friends you think may be interested (even if you can't make it yourself).
