Permaculture Foundations: The Path of Regeneration (Sat.-Sun.)    Sat Mar 4 to Sun Mar 5, 2017, London, ON

Permaculture is a complete design system, based on principles of ecology and sustainability that can be used to create resilient, economically stable, and productive landscapes, home and communities.

At its simplest, permaculture is an eco-logical approach to design. It can be described as a way of thinking, making decisions and designing human habitat and culture based on observing nature. Permaculture has a set of ethics and design principles which can be applied to all areas of our lives, including gardens, energy systems, business, economy and social structures.

In this workshop you will learn the foundations of Permaculture. The workshop contains a healthy mixture of theory and engaging hands-on exercises with a focus on the creation of a forest garden. Learn methods and strategies for creating positive changes in your life, community and the environment. Informative, inspiring and practical!
