is a great time to make plans for the upcoming gardening season. Have
you wondered how permaculture design might help you with your gardening

Camden Adult Ed is a great way to explore the huge topic of permaculture
Here is the
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!
