Join best-selling permaculture author Toby Hemenway for a dynamic and practical course on creating your home ecosystem. Imagine living in a yard that overflows with food and other useful products such as medicine, fiber, and building supplies. Your yard can also shrink home energy bills, extend your growing season, and be a comfortable outdoor space year-round in all but the harshest climates. It can also help provide income and reduce your dependence on money. In this 5-session course, you’ll learn how to do all this, but there’s more: That same yard that gives you food, energy, and income security can also enhance wildlife habitat, sequester carbon, and provide a beautiful, restful sanctuary for you and your partners or family. If you enjoyed reading Gaia’s Garden, this course will show you how to bring that book to life in your yard. Those who complete this course will earn a certificate from the Permaculture Institute (USA).
