About the Event

Would you like a garden that works with nature and yields an abundance of food, fibre and energy?

Permaculture (a term coined from ‘permanent’ + ‘agriculture’) is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems.

This introductory workshop, presented by permaculturalist and educator Fiona Blackham, will cover topics including: History of permaculture and the science behind it; Design – ethics and principles underpinning permaculture; Understanding what you have and how you can work with it (sectors); Managing resources and time (zones); and Functionality of permaculture design.

This workshop is suitable for adults and children aged 14 and over.

Places are limited, so bookings are essential. This free workshop is part of the Thinking Green workshop series.
