The class focuses on the design of family gardens. The instructor will survey the permaculture of vegetables, fruits, domestic animals and the factors used to place these for maximum productivity and minimum labor. Later in the course, participants will learn some basic gardening skills along with how to design and build a garden. Water, soil, pest management, garden ecology, and climate are also explored.
