    Great turnout, especially considering it was the day after Christmas! Helder did a nice job giving the new folks an overview of permaculture, so that the average increase in knowledge was (self-assessed) 2.5 (scale of one to ten)!

    Could you give a bit more information on the course?

    • Loretta B.

      Sure, Toni--this is your basic "Permaculture 101", or Everything you always wanted to know about sustainable living, but were afraid to ask! We'll be having hands-on workshops on soil building (composting, worm bins), urban permaculture (growing volumes of food in small spaces), pros & cons of different system designs (hydroponics & aquaponics), urban livestock, mini earthworks demonstrations, homesteading skills, and social permaculture (conflict resolution, consensus, etc.)
