Forest Gardens in a Nutshell, Part 1: Permaculture Basics Zoom Presentation
March 28, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join us for an introduction to ecological design (aka permaculture), ethics and principles along with a sneak peek at our tiny food forest for the Village of Pittsford.
A Zoom webinar led by Patty Love, founder of Barefoot Ecological Design.
Patty Love defines permaculture as an interdisciplinary and holistic design science based in and derived from the observation of indigenous practices of nature stewardship and natural ecological systems of relationships that strives to repair and create regenerative and reciprocal systems for meeting human needs while also enhancing the quality of life for all beings, including plants, insects, non-human animals, and fungi.
When we apply permaculture to land stewardship and use the humid temperate forest native to this region as our model, we restore ecologically sound habitats where humans, pollinators, amphibians, and the rest of nature can thrive.
Join us for an introduction to permaculture ethics, principles, and design along with site specific considerations for the Village of Pittsford Northwest Quadrant Regenerative Habitat Niche. We’ll also review examples of temperate food forests in other public and private spaces. Q & A session immediately following the presentation.
Begins at 1 pm.
