Lets work with nature, not against it! In the city as well.
The word Permaculture is derived from the words permanent and culture. It is a holistic design tool that can be used for many purposes including land management and gardening that adopts arrangements observed in natural flourishing ecosystems.
This 6 hour introductory course is specially designed for urban environments – cities and suburbs – where growing space can be very limited. Whatever the space is you have for growing, applying permaculture practices can make it more diverse, more productive and more beautiful.
