|Title:||Introduction to Permaculture Workshop|
|Description:||One Day Introduction to Permaculture Workshop|
It’s not just gardening. It’s a way of life, an holistic approach to sustainable living.
Food & Trees for Africa, the organisation that introduced Permaculture to South Africa in 1991, now offers one day Permaculture workshops for gardeners. Learn a more sustainable way to grow good organic food whilst using natural resources wisely to enhance nature rather than control or deplete it.
Permaculture design deliberately places elements so that the different components work together the same way that the parts of an ecosystem do, to enhance the relationship or interactions between parts of the design to create a productive, sustainable system.
Garden design, permaculture principles and ethics
Soil – analysis, building fertility, management and improvement with demonstration of compost, mulch, earthworms, liquid nutrients, green manure, nitrogen fixers and crop rotation
Water - principles, resourceful water use and management including low tech irrigation
Planting seeds and seedlings, interplanting, container gardening and companion planting
Garden maintenance, weeding, natural pest control, staking, thinning out and transplanting.
