Permaculture (permanent agriculture) is a popular and ancient system of growing food that minimizes labor by using perennial plants, which come back year after year. Join Sean Dembrosky of Edible Acres (edibleacres.org) for an evening introduction to the basic concepts of permaculture. We'll look at living examples of plant guilds, polycultures, and shed light on some of the concepts that inform permaculture ethics and design in gardens and beyond.
