Designing Bountiful Gardens Through Permaculture (series)

Designing Bountiful Gardens is the Fall permaculture series of classes that is open to anyone who has completed the prerequisite classes of Sustainable Living 1 and 2. Knowledge of gardening is not needed. This module is over 6 Sundays totaling 30 class hours. Pre-registration is required. The price for the series includes materials and catered lunch at one of the field trips to Animal Farm Permaculture Center in Cat Spring, TX. We will have a potluck at one of the field trips. You might want to bring a lunch to the other classes. Bountiful Gardens focuses on the design of family gardens in its context of being an element in the design of a home or farm property using permaculture principles. Initially we survey the permaculture of vegetables, fruits, domestic animals and the factors we use to place these for maximum productivity and minimum labor. Later in the course we learn some basic gardening skills along with how to design and build a garden. Water, soil, pest management, garden ecology, and climate are also featured.
