Permaculture Workshop at Old Pine Farm Natural Lands Trust

Elizabeth Kligge, a certified permaculture designer, invites you to join her at Old Pine Farm Natural Lands Trust at 2 p.m. on December 16 for a Permaculture workshop, part of their Walk in the Wild series. In this short course, attendees will be distilling lessons found within a typical 72-hour permaculture design course. The presentation will culminate in several hands-on design exercises.

Permaculture, derived from permanent agriculture, is the design and maintenance of agricultural systems, which have the diversity, stability and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is a multidisciplinary approach that incorporates agriculture, water harvesting, energy, natural building, forestry, waste management, animal systems and aquaculture. The philosophy behind permaculture is one of working with, rather than against, nature.

Kligge grew up gardening and exploring the local wild places near Reading, Pennsylvania. She first learned about wild plants from her parents, near the creek that runs through their land, and eventually went on to study primitive survival and teach her own workshops across the United States. She is an avid naturalist with a particular interest in tracking, hunter-gatherer and homesteading skills.

Guests are asked to meet at the Willoughby House.

Cost: Free. Location: 340 Pine Ave., Deptford, NJ. For more information, call Charles White at 856-217-9138.
