Permaculture for Home and Garden

Discussing organic gardening, building with local natural materials, ecological lawn, meadow, stream and wetland care, orchards, composting and more

Thursday, April 25, 2013


This Thursday we have a special guest, Permaculturist Andrew Faust coming to share his knowledge in the community garden from 3-6. 

He will be talking about Permaculture for Home and Garden. In this workshop, we will learn Permaculture principles as applied in temperate homes and gardens. We will discuss organic gardening, building with local natural materials, ecological lawn, meadow, stream and wetland care, orchards, composting, off-the-grid water systems, and domestic and wild animal management.

Bring questions about your garden and home and be prepared to learn about ideas that can improve your quality of life, simplify your needs, and increase your family time by cooperating with ecological processes to create abundance and diversity.
