Permaculture design organizes the elements that we humans desire into the natural fabric of the environment in a way that is creative and realistic. Learn the step-by-step design process that is guided by how the natural world works. This workshop entails teamwork to design the Food Forest, and will be followed by an informal presentation to the community so we can gain some public input. Lunch will be provided. **IMPORTANT** To register for the event please go here: http://www.swancreekparkfoodforest.eventbrite.com

This workshop is third in a Permaculture Skill Series to gather info and create a design for the Edible Forest Garden at Swan Creek Park. Permaculture design creates abundant, low-maintenance, deliciously edible and self-renewing gardens. Come learn techniques and processes that Permaculture uses as it applies to Swan Creek Park Food Forest. Not only will your contributions guide the food forest’s implementation, you’ll also learn skills that are easily transferred to other garden projects at home.
Instruction is led by Kelda Lorax, with the teaching team of Sean Corwin, Cecily Wolff, Ibraheim Martin, and Nick Lorax.
