Permaculture Principles in Food Growing

Join Susannah Hall in this training about Permaculture Principles in Food Growing.

27 Jul 2021 17:3019:00

Permaculture is an ethical design system, based on ecological principles, that creates sustainable and regenerative human habitats by following nature's patterns.

This workshop will examine how to approach growing food by planting edible ecosystems that maximise yield from a growing space. The approach challenges conventional approaches to food growing by combining annuals and perennials, using plant combinations for fertility and focussing on supporting the soil ecosystem. 

As well as presenting a way to understand the approach the workshop will also outline practical ways to approach food growing from a permaculture perspective.
