Introduction to Permaculture @ Camden adult ed

 

Nevermind the snow outside.  Spring is nearly here and you can hear it in the bird song and see it in the leaf and flower buds.  Now is the time to start designing the garden for the coming growing season.  Good garden design that integrates both perennials and annuals is an important part of having long term success.  Of course, sustainability is on everyone’s mind these days, and so with that in mind I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be teaching another Introduction to Permaculture course through Camden Adult Ed.  We will focus on the subjects of goals for the garden, design of the garden, and sustainability in the garden and how that connects to the rest of society.

They will leave with a strong foundation in ecological literacy for applying permaculture ethics and design principles.
