Event Description: 

This program will introduce you to permaculture practices and provide examples of how to implement them in your own gardens. Many permaculture principles save time and energy while benefiting wildlife and insects. Topics to be discussed include ways to increase efficiency and build resilience while improving soil fertility and biodiversity. When we approach gardening and yard care with the view of interconnectedness, amazing things happen! Come find out how to make Permaculture practices part of your plans for this coming spring.

Kelly Wood has happily had her hands in the soil for as long as she can remember. She has studied herbalism and completed a Permaculture Design course in 2016. She is passionate about connecting people to nature-based gardening and permaculture practices while applying them on her own two tranquil acres.
