DESIGNING BOUNTIFUL GARDENS THROUGH PERMACULTURE CLASS SERIES
Designing Bountiful Gardens is open to anyone who has completed the prerequisite classes of Sustainable Living 1 and 2. Knowledge of gardening is not needed as this is A series about design not gardening. This module is over 6 Sundays totaling 30 class hours. Pre-registration is required.
Bountiful Gardens focuses on the design of family gardens in its context of being an element in the design of a home or farm property using permaculture principles. Initially we survey the permaculture of vegetables, fruits, domestic animals and the factors we use to place these for maximum productivity and minimum labor. Later in the course we learn some basic gardening skills along with how to design and build a garden. Water, soil, pest management, garden ecology, and climate are also featured. The price for the series includes materials and catered lunch at one of the field trips to Animal Farm Permaculture Center in Cat Spring, TX. We will have a potluck at one of the field trips. You will want to bring a lunch to the other classes.
