Permaculture Series at Cherry Glen

I am pleased to announce the upcoming Permaculture Series at the Cherry Glen Learning Farm.  Thursday evening classes will begin in February and run through March.  Each class will run approximately two hours, with coffee and tea available.
Cherry Glen Learning Farm
During these sessions participants will:
  • Learn skills to integrate Permaculture principles and techniques into their property
  • Design a plan incorporating what they have learned, and
  • Establish a plant collection they can use to launch their new landscapes

In the first part of the series students will learn the ethics and principles of Permaculture, how to observe their property (soils, solar/water/energy flow, etc.) and experience a hands-on workshop with seed handling, taking cuttings and fruit tree grafting.

The second half will be more hands-on workshops determining contours, installing earthworks and planting site preparation.  The final session students will share and discuss their landscape plans they have created.
