Permaculture is a set of principles, design tools, and growing techniques that serve to enrich the earth rather than deplete it. It combines sustainable agriculture, landscape design, and ecology, and encourages working with nature to design a garden that thrives with minimal intervention. With greater emphasis on building soil rather than tilling, growing perennial plants rather than annuals, harvesting natural resources, recycling garden waste, and mirroring natural ecosystems, gardens of all sizes can be cultivated organically, ultimately using less time and money. Permaculture seeks to care for the earth and its people in ways that are fair, equitable, and lasting. This seminar brings three local urban farmers and earth activists together to dig deeply into these principles while sharing their wealth of knowledge and experience in growing abundant landscapes and healthy communities.
