The Permaculture Market Garden Workshop
This workshop introduces key concepts from Zach’s book The Permaculture Market Garden. It starts with a crash course in natural science, builds understanding of ecosystem services, and proceeds with techniques for mapping and designing your farm to fit within a property’s environmental reality. It continues with holistic planning to balance your business and delves into routine improvement of your soil through brown brain Investment. This workshop culminates by outlying our Permabed system for patterning efficient garden diversity and how it serves as a framework for agro-ecosystem design. Immerse yourself in our farm design process and the possibilities for simplifying and improving your farm business or homestead.
