Permaculture is about landscape designs based on the relationships between people, plants, animals, soil, and water. It emphasizes improving soil and optimizing water use, while incorporating food plants such as fruits, nuts, and perennial vegetables. It even means designing animal raising - such as chickens and other poultry - into the landscape! Join Permaculturist Kate Heiber-Cobb for a talk on sustainable permaculture philosophies for urban and suburban landscapes. Heiber-Cobb will address simple ways that gardeners can maximize natural ecological relationships.
Walk-ins are welcome. Please pay at the door. The cost of the class is $11 for Olbrich Botanical Society members and $13 for the general public. For more information please call 608-246-4550. Visit www.olbrich.org for more information about upcoming classes and workshops.
