Training on growing your own food

We are thrilled that Dave McConville of DMc Permaculture has partnered with us to support our urban farming efforts. He is a designer and educator that has been studying, practicing, and teaching the principles of permaculture.  It is about living lightly on the planet, and making sure that we can sustain human activities for many generations to come, in harmony with nature. Permanence is not about everything staying the same. Its about stability, about deepening soils and cleaner water, thriving communities in self-reliant regions, biodiverse agriculture and social justice, peace and abundance.
