Introduction to Permaculture
Dr. Roslynn Brain McCann, Sustainable Communities Extension Specialist
Friday, November 2, 1-2p.m.
Logan Library, Jim Bridger Room
Permaculture is a design process that guides human communities in achieving the resilience and regenerative capacity of natural ecosystems. The principles and practices are drawn from the ecological knowledge of traditional and indigenous cultures integrated with modern scientific understanding and selected technologies. Permaculture design provides a framework for helping individuals and communities develop innovative, creative and effective strategies for meeting basic needs while preparing for and mitigating the existing and projected impacts of climate change. This workshop overviews the basics of permaculture design as well as the design, implementation, impacts, and spread of a community-engaged permaculture initiative created through USU Extension Sustainability that is fostering more resilience – on both the community and ecological scales – in preparation for hotter, drier climatic conditions and associated rising social conflict.
Cosponsored by the Logan Library and Bridgerland Audubon Society, the Audubon Armchair Gardening Series is partnered with the USU Permaculture Initiative, meeting on the first Friday of the month, 1-2pm in the Logan Library.
The monthly presentations focus on gardening and topics specific to Utah’s climate. Come join us in celebrating The Year of the Bird and Audubon’s Plants for Birds initiative!
All events are free and open to the public.
