‘Permaculture’- or ‘permanent agriculture’- is a holistic design system making human landscapes more connected, productive, and ecologically regenerative. While practiced at scales varying from balconies to broad regions- its origins are in its application to small farms, homesteads, and land-based community-oriented micro-enterpirses. Join with grower, builder, and professional farm designer Keith Morris to explore how permaculture design can be used by market growers to better cooperate with the ecosystems and communities they depend on to be more profitable and resilient. We’ll introduce a process for thorough site analysis and long-term (even intergenerational) farm design and planning, and explore some specific techniques best applied in production-scale systems.
