(Yard to Table Intensive)
(There are 19,000,000 acres of suburban lawn in the United States. Permaculturist, David Blume, ran an urban CSA farm that fed 300-450 people for over nine years on two acres. He achieved yields eight times what the Department of Agriculture says is possible per square foot and he did it on round that was initially lifeless, hard clay. He increased fertility so much that compared to commercial agricultural soil, which has around 2% organic matter, Mr. Blumes reached 22%.)
Whether you live in a subdivision with an HOA or in apartment, a standard lot or have a bit of acreage. You can learn the basic ethics and principles of permaculture design to design your own suburban homestead.
Permaculture is a design science that is rooted in observation of natural systems and offers a toolkit building lifestyle and landscapes that can meet and exceed our needs and by using permaculture design you can supply many of your own needs inside and our your own back door while increasing the fertility of the soil, water and air all around us.
BURBSTEADING is a workshop as well as an E-course. It is geared toward families and the whole, 3 week long course runs quarterly online and locally in DFW can be used as an interactive curriculum for the entire family.
The course will take you step-by-step as you become an observer and designer of your own homestead. At the end of the workshop you will have a site design of your property, complete with plant/animal and project lists, and a plan to implement it and make your design a reality.
TO BE PUT ON MAILING LIST:
Forums, printouts, booklets, ongoing support, plant lists, animal shelter plans, and garden design plans. At the end of the course you will have a tailor made design of your own space!!
