Permaculture is a form of landscape design that follows recognised principles, while utilizing the features and patterns occurring in our natural eco-systems. With a focus on sustainability, the ultimate goal is an energy efficient and self-supporting environment within your garden borders.

Your introduction in this workshop will be a brief history of Permaculture, while also covering the 12 key principles upon which Permaculture is based.

You will also cover some of the common motivations behind setting up a Permaculture-based system, discuss site analysis and zoning, and all the basics to leave this workshop feeling enlightened and possibly empowered to evaluate your home garden, and perhaps begin to design and implement a Permaculture-based system and environment at home.
