Permaculture is next level organic! It is a holistic approach to gardening, farming, landscaping, building and living that emphasizes common sense and self-sustainment. It is an attempt to integrate several disciplines including; biology, ecology, geography, agriculture, architecture, and appropriate technology, into the ways we farm, garden, raise animals, build structures, preserve food, and produce and use energy. This is a class for all ages and backgrounds.
