Guest Permaculture Teacher, Wanda Knapik, will demonstrate an approach to developing a food growing community garden by applying Permaculture Design Principles to an empty lot.  Using an underutilized urban landscape as an outdoor classroom, participants will be taken through a site assessment and analysis process that will guide their planning and installation activities for the 2012 season.

Please bring cushion / cardboard / chair to sit on and something to take notes with.  Also, we have much to cover so we will be starting on time.  Come early to sign-in and meet others interested in learning these skills.

Wanda is an inspirational leader, environmentalist, food activist, outdoor adventurer, and owner of My Local Garden. Currently, she is focused on building a broad community of backyard vegetable growers in New Jersey and creating a more sustainable local food system. She is the founder of The Permaculture Network of NJ (PNNJ) and currently teaching a for-credit Permaculture Design Certification course at Seton Hall University.
