Introduction to Permaculture

2017-02-05 @ 10:00 - 16:00


Start Planning For Spring With An Instruction To Permaculture Design Course

Gardening Inspired by Nature

Let’s face it, gardening can be a tonne of work. Who has time for all that watering, weeding, tilling, and spraying? What if I were to tell you that there’s an easier way?

Dustin Bajer, Introduction To Permaculture, Backyard Garden
A self-watering permaculture garden in Edmonton.

Why is it that forests can thrive for thousands of years without being watered, fertilised, or tilled? As a design science based on principles found in ecology, permaculture teaches us how to work with, rather than against, nature. With an emphasis on food production and sustainability, this introduction to permaculture class will get you thinking like an ecosystem and offer you techniques to create beautiful, biologically diverse, and ecologically healthy landscapes.
