Intro to Permaculture and Regenerative Homesteading

Saturday, Nov. 6 • 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Halfway House Permaculture Learning Center, 1165 Perini Rd., McKinleyville

The world is way off course to meet carbon-emission reduction targets in the Paris Climate Agreement. “Permaculture” and “Regenerative Agriculture” are similar paths to making a course correction – and you can help! In this introduction to permaculture offered through Humboldt State University’s OLLI program, students will learn how to be a part of cutting emissions and regenerating the Earth’s topsoil. If you have a garden — or want one — you can be a part of localizing our food system, a huge paradigm shift towards a sustainable world. Click here to register!
