SF&G Members' Gathering October: Permaculture Design in Community Growing Settings

Permaculture Design in Community Growing Settings

SF&G's Paul Jennings will be leading this session exploring how to incorporate permaculture design in community growing settings. Permaculture is an approach to land management and settlement design that adopts arrangements observed in flourishing natural ecosystems. It includes a set of design principles derived using whole-systems thinking that can be used effectively in a community-growing setting both in terms of physical design, and group governance and management.
