Planning a Permaculture Garden Skill Set

Share this course on your social media page

Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems.

It is the harmonious integration of landscape and people — providing their food, energy, shelter, and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way.

Design your own propagation program and grow the plants needed for a permaculture food forest in our temperate climate.

Save hundreds of dollars and reduce your carbon footprint by propagating locally sourced plant material and incorporating upcycled materials into your garden system.

Studying one day a week for 9 weeks, you will learn:

Plants commonly used in Permaculture systems, and their uses

How to grow new plants from cuttings and seed

How to propagate plants by grafting, layering and division

How to create the optimal growing media for growing permaculture plants

How to best care for, water and feed your plants for continued success.
