Brown Bag Bunch – An Introduction to Permacultuer
Thomas Thurston will present an introduction to Permaculture. Permaculture is a system of agricultural and social design principles centered around simulating or directly utilizing the patterns and features observed in natural ecosystems. The information presented will include a brief history of permaculture–short for permanent agriculture–followed by an introduction to the twelve principles of permaculture. If weather permits, the talk will conclude with a short nature walk to look at the native forest ecosystem and discuss how agriculture can be inspired by nature.
