Weekend Property Design Workshop - Permaculture for the Suburbs
January 26th - Friday night public slide show 7-9pm
January 27th & 28th - Workshop
Duwamish Cohousing Community
6000-17th Ave SW
Seattle, WA

This workshop is for people with small suburban properties who want to work in harmony with nature to produce an abundance of food
in a functional environment of beauty. Through an interactive and hands-on approach, participants will learn how to integrate the
following into the small space of a typical suburban section: organic vegetable gardens, herbs and flowers, orchard, physical
structures, children’s play spaces, small animal systems, water features and small wilderness areas.

Using a ‘Permaculture’ approach to landscape design, this workshop takes place within the Duwamish Cohousing Community property we
utilize as our learning ground, culminating in an integrated design and practical activities on their land. The workshop includes
observation skills, site analysis, holistic goal setting, permaculture design principles and practical organic growing techniques.

The workshop generally begins with a public Slideshow Presentation: ‘Small Space: Big Harvest: an introduction to Suburban
Permaculture’ followed by two full days of Property Design Workshop. It is necessary to attend both days.
