Designing Your Urban Permaculture Farm and Garden
Andrew Faust will outline the essentials of using Permaculture to design a super successful rooftop farm or backyard garden landscape with perennials, fruits, nuts and berry container plantings with native habitats and veggies in mind.
Learn the basics of ecologically designed gardens and provide yourself with the key design insights of permaculture applied in the dynamic context of the urban environment in New York City.
Season extension and fall gardening will be addressed as well as putting your garden to sleep for the winter with cover crops and other soil enhancing techniques!

Permaculture is a whole systems design science that is positively changing the way people think and interact with Earth. Turn problems into solutions by joining us in the discussion, design and implementation of projects in and around Brooklyn and the surrounding region. We are looking to create an active group of motivated beings that want to contribute to all the positive change that is happening in our region and the world. This Meetup will be lead by Andrew Faust and occasional visiting friends. Andrew is director at Center for Bioregional Living which since 2007 has been training permaculture designers in NYC and starting June 1st 2012 at their rural campus in Ellenville, NY. A certificate in Permaculture Design is very helpful but not necessary. Click HERE to join Brooklyn Permaculture Meetup.
