Arboretum offers permaculture class Aug. 27

Hi Everyone - Please join us in a fun and exciting class on permaculture! The Arboretum has now had two successful Permaculture Design courses (72 hours of class each), and we are going to begin another course at the end of September. Come and learn what all the excitement is about in this morning introduction! Jill

Introduction to Permaculture

Saturday, August 27, 2011

at the Arboretum, 301 North Baldwin Ave., Arcadia, CA 91007

10am –12noon

Caitlin Bergman, Instructor

$25 Arboretum members / $28 non-members

Pre-registration preferred, but you may also pay at the door. Please call 626.821.4623 to reserve your place or email .

Join our exciting, interactive lecture and hands-on demonstrations as we learn how to create a food forest in our own backyard. Have you ever wondered why growing your own vegetables can be so difficult? Learn to work like nature, not against it.

Discover a quickly growing revolution in sustainable gardening where overlooked materials become free resources, yields increase, work is minimized, and the mutual support between people and the local environment is restored. This workshop-seminar will give participants an understanding of the key concepts involved in Permaculture and…you'll get to bring home seedballs too!

Dress comfortably.
