What we're about

Imagine using permaculture techniques and skills to create a resilient and TRULY sustainable human landscape. As we face energy, climate and economic challenges, permaculture offers one of the best "tool kits" for moving in a positive and productive direction: resilient communities full of creative abundance. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, there is some part of permaculture that will make sense for your life and your relationship to the landscape where you live and work. Join us.

We cover topics such as (but not limited to) edible landscapes, gardening, farming, renewable energy, green building, local currency, rainwater harvesting, composting, mushrooms, local food, forest gardening, herbalism, "green" living, sustainable economic systems, conservation, community-building, relocalization, transition towns, and more!

Catskill Native Nursery


Sometimes the weather is rainy, sometimes it’s dry. The way to get the best production from your vegetable or fruit plants (or ornamentals or potted plants...) is with timely watering, and the best way to water is with drip irrigation. Drip saves water, makes for healthier plants and fewer weeds, and is easily automated. Learn why drip irrigation works so well, the ins and outs of designing your own system, and participate in a hands-on drip irrigation installation. Limited space, so pre-registration is necessary; register at www.leereich.com/workshops.

Tour will start promptly at 6:30. Please car pool if possible. There will be plants for sale. THIS MEET-UP IS FREE WITH A DONATION BASKET - Hortus is now operating as a 501c3 organization and your contributions help us continue to grow.
