Permaculture Your Yard--$25
About this event :
Before we design and implement our dream yards or gardens, it is essential to understand what is already at play in those environments and how to work with, rather than against, nature. In this workshop, you will learn how to use basic Permaculture principles and methods to understand the natural systems in your space, creatively problem solve, conceptualize your yard or garden plan, develop a basic map of your space and apply low tech methods to get your “yarden” going. Spring is the perfect time to flex your garden muscles. This class will be held both inside and outside and will include some hands-on elements. Bring pictures of sketches of your yard and all your questions!
