Learn how you can pursue energy savings through appropriate design in a one-hour interactive exploration of permaculture.

This Saturday continues a season of Saturday Acoustic Cafes at Ellison’s on Front Street. This week explore patterns for saving energy with The Foodtree Permaculture beginning at 10 a.m. followed by live music.

Permaculture is a design philosophy modeled on ecological patterns. We can design aspects of our lives using permaculture to function in harmony with these patterns. Applying permaculture design can help us create resilient, functional systems.

Subjects such as green energy retrofits, community development and low maintenance gardening may be explored. Energy saving can be applied everywhere: indoors, outdoors, office, home, rental, apartment or homestead. Bring your questions as this event will be guided by your design needs.

Join the Foodtree Permaculture at Ellison’s Market Café, 10 a.m. November 17 and explore ways you can use less energy, save money and manage time by designing what you already do, better.

The Foodtree Permaculture education facilitates hands-on educational events inspired by permaculture design, organic gardening, appropriate technology, skill-building and sustainability. To find out more, visit thefoodtree.org.
