Learn practical ways of applying permaculture principles in your garden and community. Join us at Shelter Solano in Fairfield for educational and inspiring talks on various topics on sustainability including sustainable landscaping, water, soil building and more!
Planning to plant, then planting to plan could be one of the most beneficial acts for our planet’s well-being, as well as our own. It ties us intimately and directly into the cycles of nature. Tending to plants also teaches us to have respect for, and work within, the dimension of time. In Permaculture, careful consideration is given to plant selection, timing, and placement in order to maximize beneficial relationships. Come and learn more about permaculture planting strategy, as well as some ideas for planting for a school year harvest. Then take a guided tour of our demonstration food forest, where we are growing over 20 edible plants!
Following this half-hour talk, we’ll take a guided tour of our demonstration food forest, where we are improving over 2000 square feet with permaculture design methods! This public garden saves more than 100,000 gallons of water annually!
