Jessica Robertson from Wild Craft Permaculture and Michael Schimp of Three Acre Permaculture co-lead this workshop that will introduce you to the concept and theory of permaculture, and provide you with the practical tools to start applying it in your garden, your life and your community.
Permaculture is inspired by the deep observation of natural systems. It does not seek to recreate them, but to learn from them and apply ecological principles to the design of human systems.
Activities and exercises throughout the day will teach you to think and approach problems with a regenerative mindset. Participants will have a chance to experience hands-on learning in a natural, outdoor setting at the Westminster Ponds Centre.
This is an IN-PERSON hands-on event. Registration is required and will be capped at 20 people, to maintain a more individualized learning experience. Masks will be required indoors.
Participants should plan to bring their own lunch, snacks and water bottle. There will be a fridge to store your food throughout the day. Indoor washrooms and extra water will be available for participants.
