Come along to the most popular module of the permaculture design course - designing food gardens. This day long workshop takes a holistic approach to food garden design offering participants a well integrated overview of the topic and general framework for considering their own garden plans

This workshop will cover 

  • permaculture ethics, principles, zones, and design processes*;

  • working with water, micro-climates, sunlight, and soils in the garden*;

  • designs for gardens, pathways, and garden beds;

  • perennial and annual crops;

  • seed-saving and propagation;

  • planting plans, rotation plans, cover crops, inter-cropping, and companion planting;

  • weeds, pests, and diseases;

  • harvesting; and

  • gardening in community.


* Please note: These topics are addressed more fully in other modules of the full twelve-day permaculture course; in this workshop, they will be discussed in abbreviated form, focusing only on their applications to food gardening.

The day will include a shared, bring-a-plate lunch; a practical, get-your-hands-dirty activity; and a mix of classroom activities and mini-lectures. More information will be provided upon registration.
