Permaculture Workshop at Old Pine Farm Natural Lands Trust
Join Certified Permaculture Designer Elizabeth Kligge at Old Pine Farm Natural Lands Trust on June 16 at 2 p.m. for a permaculture workshop, part of their Walk in the Wild series. Permaculture (derived from permanent agriculture) is the design and maintenance of agricultural systems that have the diversity, stability and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is a multidisciplinary approach, incorporating agriculture, water harvesting, energy, natural building, forestry, waste management, animal systems and aquaculture. The philosophy behind it is one of working with, rather than against, nature.
In this permaculture 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. The workshop will be held both indoors and out, weather permitting, but the presentation will be held rain or shine.
Attendees are asked to bring gardening gloves and to meet at the Willoughby House at the end of Pine Avenue, off Good Intent Road, in Blackwood Terrace. There is an additional small parking lot available at the end of Rankin Avenue, one block from Pine Avenue. Carpooling is recommended.
Cost: Free. Location: 340 Pine Ave., Deptford. For more information, call Charles White at 856-217-9138. Visit Facebook for changes and directions.
