Where experiences bloom.
Here at Juneberry Ridge, we have an event for everyone: sporty or artsy, hands-dirty or head-in-the-clouds. Come be a stargazer, or a foodie. Take up a challenge, or a new craft. It’s a whole world of experiences, only made better by our irrepressible southern hospitality. (After all, we want you to fall in love with the farm too.)
Principles of Permaculture in Action Workshop
Open to all learners
This full day class on May 6th will introduce participants to the history and principles of permaculture, see permaculture in action in our living classroom, and begin to envision your own permaculture design for part of your land.
Full program description:
In this one-day workshop students will learn about the history of permaculture and how it has grown to
be a worldwide movement connecting people back to land – humans, a healing force in the world and a
part of ecosystems.
Participants will dip a toe into whole systems design and learn about the principles of permaculture and
how they are used to design thriving landscapes. Together we will see some of these principles in action as we walk the land at Juneberry Ridge. We’ll see how silvopasture systems can enrich grasslands, livestock, and wildlife, and how aquifers can be re-charged using key-line design.
Participants will also participate in a small “design charette” where they will design a part of their land (be
it front or back yard, woodland, or pasture) using primarily native plants to provide habitat, food,
medicine, beauty, and community – visioning spaces that are alive, relational, and bountiful.
