Move from inspiration to action in this two-part class that covers the principles of permaculture and an understanding of its place in successful landscape design. Successful landscape design creates holistic spaces that are aesthetically pleasing, balanced and where every piece of the landscape is maximally used to benefit the system as a whole. This is done in many ways but primarily through understanding design while developing beneficial relationships in the ecosystem, minimizing waste and energy, replicating natural systems, valuing diversity and garden efficiency. An ideal landscape nurtures itself and fits seamlessly into the natural environment. Landscape Architect and Permaculture Design Certificate Holder Jennifer Verprauskus provides a look at how both native edible and other edible plants have been historically important as as well as a popular design element in landscapes over the decades.
