Introduction to Permaculture

In a permaculture garden everything works together in synergy. A permaculture garden requires little to no irrigation, fertilizer, weeding and pest-control, but is nonetheless highly productive.

For an example, strawberries growing under a new apple tree...

1. Keep down weeds

 2. Are beautiful with their pretty white flowers

3. Provide nectar for bees

4.Provide delicious fruit. 

A permaculture garden requires little to no irrigation, fertilizer, weeding and pest-control, but is nonetheless highly productive. It is also a natural habitat for wildlife, including pollinators and butterflies.  And, by the way, because it will improve your soil, it is a way to sequester some of that excess climate-harming carbon floating around. This workshop will introduce you to the basic principles permaculture, and give you practical ideas to implement in your own garden. Come and spend a few hours with us for an introduction to permaculture, an approach to growing fruits, nuts, herbs and vegetables that intentionally mimics patterns and relationships found in nature. Instructed by Anna (Babette) Wils, see her work in Needham, MA at Big Foot Edible Forest Gardens
