Ellison’s Market is hosting a free permaculture workshop on March 24.

Ellison’s Market is hosting a free permaculture workshop on March 24. Enjoy the company of other enthusiasts as they discuss practical applications of permaculture design.

Apply permaculture utilizing your March snow reflected indoor window, the May backyard garden you’re already dreaming of or your blossoming community yarden, garden or neighborhood min- farm.

Ellison’s is hosting collaborators from The Food Tree, launching broad initiatives in permaculture education during this interactive session. They will be discussing design solutions you and your community can implement today.

During this 90 minute session you will learn more about how to divert your own waste streams, reduce water use, deter pests great and small, all while creating abundance and beauty in your backyard garden or expanding farm.

This informal workshop begins at 10 a.m. with late arrivals welcome. Enjoy the refreshments available at Ellison’s Café, live music to follow.
