Perennial Plants & Resilient Human Habitats Workshop: Fulham

hero
Perennial Plants and Resilient Human Habitats workshop: Saturday 27 July 2019
Time: 10am - 4.30pm
Where: Fulham Community Centre, 19 Fitch Rd Fulham, 5024
Cost: $25 Permaculture SA Members/concession; $40 Waged/non-member

Trees and perennial plants play many important roles in human, community and planetary health, which are especially important in our current climate emergency. Re-greening our neighbourhoods with appropriate plants using permaculture design techniques will enable us to be more resilient to the negative impacts of climate change and to act to quickly reduce carbon emissions. 

This workshop provides a practical framework for understanding the wide variety of perennials you can plant and how to integrate them, maximising benefits and managing potential problems. This leads into designing and creating more sustainable, productive and climate-resilient outdoor areas.

A delicious lunch, snacks and drinks are provided

 

Workshop topics:

  • The importance of perennials for climate-smart gardening and food production

  • Using appropriate trees and perennial plants for natural cooling of our houses, buildings and living areas

  • Successfully integrating vegies, fruit trees and other perennial plants

  • Identifying micro-climates and basic design techniques for outside areas

  • Creating wildlife and beneficial insect habitats in urban areas
