Innovative Permaculture & Whole System Design
Monday, March 4, 6 p.m.

Utilizing his forthcoming book, Ben Falk will present an image and illustration-filled tour of the primary principles and their application used in the operation of a high diversity, nutrient-dense food, medicine, and fuel-producing homestead and small farm – the Whole Systems Research Farm. Aspects covered include rapid fuelwood production in black locust hedgerows, integrating grazing with perennial woody crops, wood-heating hot water, rice paddy construction and management, ducks and sheep in the system, earthworks for drought and flood prevention and much more.
