Permaculture is defined as 'the development of agricultural ecosystems intended to be sustainable and self-sufficient' (OED).
Hosted by Plymouth Growing Futures, the informal workshop introduces you to urban permaculture and how to get started. This workshop is led by Tess Wilmot.
Tess teaches and practises permaculture in many locations in and around Plymouth. She has been instrumental in encouraging and supporting many small growing projects in inner city Plymouth. With the increasing interest in urban agriculture, food security and healthy eating, this timely workshop will provide an insightful and informative advice on why and how to get started with urban permaculture from the University campus, your local neighbourhood, to your window sill!
Topics covered will be principles of permaculture, perennial plants, and useful plants for beginners, the importance of soil and composting.
Tess will bring resources to look at and refreshments will be available at the workshop.
This event is open to University staff and students.
Members of the community are welcome by invitation - please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details and availability.
