FREE Introduction to Permaculture Class this Tuesday at the Wolfeboro Public Library!!

Come learn about permaculture this Tuesday, October 11th at the Wolfeboro Public Library.  Permaculture is a framework for working toward greater sustainability that uses ecological principles to integrate food and energy production, structures, and community.

Topics covered will include:

  • An Introduction to Permaculture Ethics and Principles
  • The Permaculture Design Process
  • Site Analysis and Assessment
  • Food and Energy Security
  • Natural Systems and Biodiversity
  • Examples from a Range of Projects
  • Additional Resources for your backyard

Come and learn what Permaculture is all about, and why it is important to you! What could it mean to your community? How does Permaculture differ from other approaches to sustainability? This session is especially useful for homeowners, community organizers, design professionals, farmers, and gardeners.

The class will be conducted by Steve Whitman, a professional planner and certified Permaculture Designer. Steve is also an adjunct faculty member at Plymouth State University where he teaches courses in community planning and sustainability.

This introductory class is also a chance for G.A.L.A. to gauge the community’s interest in a more intensive course potentially offered in 2012 that would prepare participants for a permaculture design certificate.

This is a free event, open to the public, and no registration is required! For more details call Steve at 603-381-1798 or email or call the Wolfeboro Public Library at 569-2428 or email at
