Permaculture (permanent agriculture) is an ancient system of growing food that minimizes labor by using perennial plants which come back year after year. Join Sean Dembrosky of Edible Acres (edibleacres.org) for this introduction to the basic permaculture concepts.  We’ll look at living examples of plant guilds, polycultures, and shed light on some of the concepts that inform permaculture ethics and design in gardens and beyond. Cost: $5-$10/person self-determined sliding scale (pay what you can afford). Register online at ccetompkins.org, or call 272-2292 to register by phone.  Questions? Contact: Chrys Gardener, cab69@cornell.edu(607) 272-2292(Voicemail #241)
