SUSTAINABLE LIVING THROUGH PERMACULTURE #1
SUN. 9/27/20 1:00PM – 5:00PM
ZOOM LIVE CLASS BY INVITATION

Permaculture is a design methodology that focuses on sustainable practices and uses effective principles and processes found in nature to inform design decisions. In a post-Harvey Houston, permaculture principles directly address the ways to be more sustainable and flood resistant in both garden and home design. In this class, the design principles of permaculture are explained, observed and illustrated by instructors from the Houston Permaculture Guild, who are Permaculture Designer Certificate graduates.

Bountiful Gardens focuses on the design of family gardens in its context of being an element in the design of a home or farm property using permaculture principles. We survey the permaculture of vegetables, fruits, domestic animals and the factors we use to place these for maximum productivity and minimum labor. We learn some basic gardening skills along with how to design and build a garden. Water, soil, pest management, garden ecology, and climate are also featured.
