The Gardeners Exchange to discuss permaculture Feb 24

Deborah North, Pima County Master Gardener

Come join The Gardeners Exchange in an eye opening discussion of the benefits of developing a permaculture in your landscape. According to Bill Mollison, the developer of the concept, “Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature; of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted and thoughtless labor; and of looking at plants and animals in all their functions, rather than treating any area as a single product system.”

Learn how to integrate irrigation, plant choice, landscape design, ecosystem, all elements of nature into one sustainable system. From trees to butterflies, all living organisms within a given environment influence each other. See how to maximize this synergy and produce a more satisfying landscape management.

The Gardeners Exchange is dedicated to providing horticultural information for newcomers to desert landscaping. Bring your questions, bring your answers, bring your garden challenges, bring your excess plants to share. All are welcome.
