Our popular Applied Permaculture Series is back!  The 2020 season runs from February through November!  Join us for all of the workshops or just the ones that interest you!
The Applied Permaculture Series is different from other permaculture courses.  We focus on learning the practical skills of building and maintaining a permaculture food forest through a series of hands-on seasonal workshops.

We have engaged a team of inspiring instructors who are professional horticulturalists, homesteaders, and stewards of existing food forests. In this Applied series, you will prune, graft, and propagate trees and shrubs; build a good swale or berm; catch, divert, and use rainwater in the soil or in well-situated water barrels; create excellent soil; manage a polyculture;  inoculate the landscape with mushrooms; grow medicinal herbs, and much more!

Prior permaculture experience is helpful but not necessary to take this series!

Space is limited – generally to 12 participants per session.
