Indigenous Wisdom: An Introduction to Permaculture

On July 6th, 2019 at 1PM, we invite you to join us in learning some of the basics of a system rooted in Indigenous wisdom called Permaculture. Permaculture is a term coined by Bill Mollison in the mid to late 1970’s and has gained a large following in the past few decades. The term is based upon the words “permanent” and “culture” or “agriculture” and the system involves observation of one’s surrounding ecosystem, and how intelligent design can improve upon the ecosystem in place.

Permaculture was inspired by the ecosystems that were created and left behind by Indigenous cultures throughout the world. Many of the systems that these cultures had established worked with perennial plants that produced food, fiber, medicine or some other function (many times functions were stacked in one plant). These plants blended in with their environments, and the systems generally worked in harmony with Nature.

We will be covering some of the basics of Permaculture, and also be taking a look at 4 easy to access and propagate plants that are keys in a Permaculture system in temperate North America. Some of these plants may already be familiar to some of you, some may have benefits you had no clue about, and some may be brand new to you. There will even be plants for sale that you can use to start your own Permaculture garden or food forest!

Regardless of your gardening experience, or your knowledge of Permaculture, we invite you to come by and check it out! There will be something to be learned for everyone, and we encourage you to come and have some fun! Parking is limited, so carpooling helps (also helps our environment!)

There is a suggested donation of $20 but this will be a sliding scale event—meaning you pay what you can, or what you think it is worth. There will be a chance to pay when you arrive or when you depart. There will also be homemade lemonade and teas!
