What will you learn in this workshop?
This workshop teaches you how to “read” a landscape. Identifying its unique features, opportunities, and constraints reveals its potential for maximum production and ecological uplift. Zone planning and other permaculture design strategies minimize the amount of energy and labor needed to create and maintain this productive landscape by mimicking the principals of natural ecosystems. Educators will demonstrate and guide participants through practice site analysis, map sketching, zone planning and other permaculture design exercises.
