Introduction to Permaculture

Wednesday, April 5, 2023

Permaculture is an innovative approach to designing sustainable systems that meet human needs while enhancing ecosystem health. In this introductory presentation led by Warren Ackerman, you will learn about the principles and practices of permaculture, including strategies for creating low-maintenance gardens, regenerating degraded landscapes, and building resilient communities. We will explore how permaculture integrates disciplines such as ecology, agriculture, and design, and how it emphasizes the importance of observation, diversity, and cooperation in creating resilient systems.

Attendees will leave this session with a foundational understanding of what permaculture is and how it can be applied to one’s own property.

No registration is required for this program.

Warren Ackerman is a new resident of Hingham, having relocated in April 2021 from Hong Kong. He runs and operates New England GreenLife, a garden design consultancy and advocates and educates on a diverse variety of sustainable lifestyle choices including energy efficiency, ecology, consumer choices, and self-reliance.
