Ecological Design & Gardening: Introduction to Permaculture Course

Saturday, May 25, 2013 - 12:00am to Sunday, May 26, 2013 - 12:00am

Permaculture is an eco-logical approach to design based on observing nature.  It can be applied to physical systems (eg. farms, gardens, cities) and to social systems (eg. organisations, businesses) anywhere.

Course Topics:
*Permaculture ethics and design principles
*Patterns in nature, zones and sectors
*Design process overview, mini design exercise
*Role of trees and forests
*Basics of edible forest gardens, guilds, polycultures, sheet-mulch
*Garden hands-on

This course will be held at the instructors' own site, which has been designed using permaculture.  This is an excellent opportunity to learn firsthand on the site.

Course Fee: $180 includes HST.
The class hours and a $180 credit can be applied towards the full Permaculture Design Course offered by the Permaculture Institute of Eastern Ontario in Ottawa in fall 2013.
