Urban Permaculture: Portable and Small Space Solutions, Saturday August 27th, 2-4 pm

Fascinated by permaculture, but wondering how you can possibly implement all those great ideas in an apartment that changes every 8 months?  Drooling over other people’s giant backyard food gardens, and wishing you could grow more food on your balcony or windowsill?  Wondering what this permaculture thing is anyway?  Then this workshop is for you!

For so many of us young people who are passionate about living sustainably in the city and growing our own food, it can sometimes feel impossible to implement it all in our transient lives and small, temporary living spaces.  This workshop will tackle this conundrum as we work together to discover ways to implement permacultural principles and grow food in the small, and ever changing spaces of our lives.

We will be doing some hands on work with container gardening and sprouting to get you started, and all participants will leave with a planted container that will grow food as well as a jar of seeds that will grow yummy sprouts.

Cost:  $5

Location:  the straw bale building at the Greater Victoria Compost Education Centre, 1216 North Park St
