In this workshop, ifarm’s head permaculturist will teach your group how to apply permaculture principles that can make any garden more productive, more resource efficient, and less labor-intensive.
Workshop Topics will include:
The workshop will begin with a presentation in our restored carriage house on the practical methods and ideas of permaculture. Following the presentation, we will take a tour of ifarm’s organic permaculture gardens. The group will see showcases of various principles and methods that are present in the garden. You will have a chance to be part of a hands-on demonstration of sheet-mulching a garden bed, which is an essential permaculture skill for increasing soil health. At the end of the workshop, we will have time for specific Q/A.
Please note that you can request to learn more about specific topics (such as soil health or “weed” management) within the program. We can also add an extra half hour to the program (at additional cost) if you wish to tour the barn, hoop house, compost system, and herb processing facilities.
