Urban Permaculture – August 17

August 17, 2023 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

Permaculture is coined from permanent culture and integrates a holistic perspective in the design of sustainability in food, housing and community. Carol will provide an introduction to urban permaculture and review the work of Urban Harvest Permaculture Design Certification Program to bring forward the reconnection to ecological wisdom principles. She will highlight native plants, layers of a food forest, and plant guilds to restore nature and strengthen food access.
