Diane recently completed a permaculture design course at GMU and is anxious to share her new knowledge with everyone. We'll create a permaculture herb spiral in the backyard, so come prepared to get your hands (possibly feet and clothes) dirty. Wear sturdy shoes and bring your gardening gloves. Dress for the weather!
Here's a picture of an herb spiral which is designed to increase planting area and create microclimates to improve garden production.
