Join Claude William Genest for an Intro to Permaculture Design next Thursday, June 12th, from 4-7pm at the McGill Edible Campus Garden.

Permaculture is an ethical system of ecological design the goal of which is to create human habitat that is aesthetically beautiful, ecologically beneficial and financially profitable. Permaculture is a philosophy of working with and not against nature to create regenerative landscapes and Gardens of Eatin' !
