PERMACULTURE is defined as the development of agricultural ecosystems intended to be sustainable and self-sufficient. I heard it once described as recreating an environment like the forest, which is never touched by human hands, but every year regenerates and produces without fail.
Join us for a one hour presentation given by a team member from the School of Permaculture who will provide an Intro to Permaculture so you can gain a better understanding into what it is, while touching on topics such as rain water harvesting, gray water harvesting, gray water bed filtration and use, suburban food forestry, composting, strategic permaculture gardening and more. Walk away with an understanding of this holistic approach to more than gardening, but a way of life. A very positive and open discussion about anything related is encouraged and usually follows. Completion of the class will earn you an Intro to Permaculture certificate that can be used toward continued education at the School of Permaculture.
Please bring a blanket, class will take place outdoor on the lawn.
Lake Forest Farm Market will open at 9am. Come early or stay after to support our farmers and artisans. Local produce and goods will be available for purchase.
This class is offered as part of an ongoing series of 'Interactive Discussions' geared toward topics relevant to the land and our health taking place at Lake Forest Farm Market.
