Permaculture course just what the garden ordered

Experienced gardeners or those who might just fancy growing some of their own food for the first time are being urged to head for Keith this weekend.

The Rural Environmental Action Project (Reap) are behind an event being held at the bandstand gardens in the town that aims to introduce people ‘permaculture’, with the focus on gardening in harmony with nature.

Participants in the Introduction to Permaculture event aims to show people in the Keith and Strathisla areas how to propagate plants, dry herbs and a whole lot more.

A spokesman for Reap said: “We highly recommend this course which will be delivered by Jonny Barton as a way to ease into thinking about permaculture – growing in harmony with nature itself.”

Through observation of natural systems, permaculture shows us how to design places, spaces and communities for 7billion people to live on the planet sustainably!

Permaculture aims to apply the ethics and principles results in reduced carbon footprints and positive impacts on the earth and it’s inhabitants.
