Winter is a great time to make plans for the upcoming gardening season.  Have you wondered how permaculture design might help you with your gardening and landscaping efforts?  This introductory course offered through Camden Adult Ed is a great way to explore the huge topic of permaculture design. 

Here is the course description:
Permaculture – the Art of Ecological Design
Permaculture is a design system and set of techniques for creating resilient human habitats and healthy ecosystems. It is modeled on ecological principles and takes into account food production, shelter, energy, water, wellness, community, culture and economics. In this abbreviated course students will gain a strong foundation for applying permaculture ethics and design principles. We will cover topics including: a permaculture design process, forest gardens & perennial polycultures, water management, earthworks, pattern literacy, and garden management.  We can also visit a local demonstration site in the Spring to see permaculture in action!
Registration $35. 4 weeks 6:00-8:00 p.m. Begins Wed 2/5 CHRHS Rm 224

This course meets Wed from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm for 4 weeks.
