Permaculture 101 – Principles, Patterns, and Plants for the Southeast
March 19 @ 9:30 am - 5:30 pm$85.00
Far more than a system of gardening, Permaculture teaches a way to harmoniously integrate people and ecology in a way that regenerates both. This new and ancient art has never been more needed than it is today.
This day-long Permaculture course is an excellent place to begin, as well as a good deep dive for anyone who has practiced some permaculture and wants to immerse themselves into the principles and patterns at the root of this movement.
We’ll explore the immensely helpful permaculture design principles and then bring it into more application by looking at some design patterns that emerge from applying these principles – especially those that work well in the sultry Southeast. We’ll dive into some favorite permaculture plants for this bioregion and their many uses, including our beautiful local trees. We’ll also make sure and get some hands on experiences in the mix and help everyone stay connected after the workshop so you can get help for your land projects and the support of a community.
Class will be held in a location to be announced within 40 minutes of Durham and Chapel Hill.
A delicious off-grid vegan lunch will be provided.
Matt and Liane will be teaching this workshop together, so don’t miss it!
Participation in this beginner-level class will give a discount on future Permaculture Design Certificate courses we teach.
