Event description

Description

We will explore permaculture as a design theory based in whole-systems thinking. In this course, you will learn how to define permaculture, permaculture ethics, key characteristics, principles and techniques, and about food forestry. Participants will be taken on an instructional tour of Spring Ridge Commons, Fernwood’s community permaculture food forest.


Instructor Bio:

Matt Gravel is a Victoria based permaculturist with a passion for living and sustainable systems. Captivated by nature and the outdoors at a young age, he comes by this honestly. With 10 years property maintenance and conventional landscaping experience, he became tired of the unsustainable and non-regenerative practices in urban environments and wanted to find a way to change urban spaces. Now Matt operates and small nursery, design and education business; Plant Buoy: Life Preservation Plants and is using this as a platform to empower and teach people low maintenance, easy to manage systems that can grow nutrient dense food and medicine while working with the constraints of nature and regenerating urban landscapes.
