Permaculture for Home and Garden
In this talk participants will learn Permaculture principles as applied in temperate homes and gardens. We will discuss beyond organic gardening, building with local natural materials, ecological lawn, meadow, stream and wetland care, orchards and forest gardens, composting, off-the-grid water systems, and domestic and wild animal management.
Bring questions about your garden and home and be prepared to learn about ideas that can improve your quality of life, simplify your needs, and increase your family time. By cooperating with ecological processes you create real abundance and diversity in your life.
Andrew Faust has been teaching about permaculture for nearly two decades, in rural settings along the East Coast and in Brooklyn, where he adapted his ideas to urban living through the Center for Bioregional Living. He has lived off the grid for eight years in West Virginia, where he designed and built a permaculture-inspired homestead including a 1,600 square foot straw-bale house.
