We meet at the Tantallon Library on Wednesday, February 19th at 7:00.
Our speaker is Jenni Blackmore
of Quackadoodle Farm.
At first glance Permaculture* can seem complicated and perhaps a little intimidating. Author Jenni Blackmore, (Permaculture for the Rest of Us and The Food Lover’s Garden) dispels these notions with a simplified description of the general principles of Permaculture, how she utilizes them at QuackaDoodle Farm and how they can be of benefit in most situations.
Permaculture is a set of design principles centered on whole systems thinking, simulating, or directly utilizing the patterns and resilient features observed in natural ecosystems. It uses these principles in a growing number of fields from regenerative agriculture, rewilding, and community resilience.
New members (and guests too!) are always welcome, so come and bring a friend. We accept donations for our local food bank.
