More and more information has been coming out on the negative effects of some of our agricultural and landscape practices.  Some of this information comes as a huge surprise, because it reveals that what we’ve been recommended to do is actually injurious to soil, wildlife, and ecosystems.  So how could we garden and landscape in a way that would build up the soil, be healthy, benefit wildlife, provide homegrown food, and be beautiful to the eye?  Diane Brandon is joined this week by Toby Hemenway, Adjunct Professor at Portland State University, Scholar-in-Residence at Pacific University, and author of Gaia’s Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture.  Mr. Hemenway has studied, teaches, and applies permaculture concepts himself and has observed its benefits firsthand.  He’ll share with us exactly what permaculture is, its ins and outs, key concepts, and how we can begin to use permactulture for healthier landscaping and improvement of the environment.
