Do you want to grow more of your own food while spending less time and energy in the garden? You’re in the right place!
This mini-course on permaculture designis a great guide for beginners who want to get started growing a permaculture garden right away but don’t have the time or money to invest in a PDC training program.
When I first heard about permaculture gardening it was like I had heard the truth for the first time. It just made complete sense to me to replicate nature in my garden and on my homestead. That doesn’t mean that traditional gardening is bad. Not at all.
I know plenty of people who use traditional gardening methods (with organic gardening practices) who enjoy an abundant garden every year. But this kind of gardening does require more attention from the gardener. Permaculture gardening aims to reduce the amount of work it takes to grow food and improve sustainability by creating systems that resemble nature.
For generations people lived by hunting & gathering and nature provided a perfect “garden” from which they could eat. Nature always balances itself out. You never see large areas where everything is dead, pest-ridden, or plagued by disease (unless humans were involved).
Bill Mollison, the grandfather of permaculture, recognized how perfect the ecosystem was in a rainforest in Tasmania and decided there must be a way to design systems that function just as well. Permaculture was born.
What’s Inside this Permaculture Design Mini-Course?
This course includes an ebook covering the basics of permaculture as well as video training.
The eBook includes an overview of the important aspects of permaculture design and implementation. If you want something that’s easy to follow, this guide is for you. Here’s what you’ll learn:
- Permaculture design principles
- Building healthy soil
- Choosing the right plants
- Attracting beneficials
- Using animals in the garden
- How to set up systems that take care of themselves
The video includes instruction on how to use what you learned in the ebook to design a well functioning permaculture homestead.
Permaculture aims to create garden systems that replicate nature. If you look at a forest or wetland, you can see just how perfect nature is in creating systems that work together.
No one has to go into the pine forest and water the trees. No one needs to go into the wetlands and spray for pests. These ecosystems are balanced systems that produce food and other resources without any input from humans.
We can replicate these systems in our gardens and on our homesteads with amazing results. The first step is to learn the basics of permaculture so you can start implementing it on your homestead.
You will be able to create a sustainable gardening system that needs little time and attention from you but produces amazing amounts of healthy food for your family!
