Why is Little Artshram at the Historic Barns Park Community Gardens in Traverse City?
To share information and offer Permaculture education through workshops and GARDEN FARMING projects.
To encourage and redesign and rebuild a resilient, local food system in Traverse City.
Here is our latest offering, with local sponsors and friends like Horizon Books to the community:
August 24th through August 27th, permaculture author and teachers, Peter Bane and Keith D. Johnson will visit Traverse City, offering a 2-day intensive on Permaculture and sharing Peter Banes’ newly published book: The Permaculture Handbook: Garden Farming for Town and Country
The urban landscape has swallowed vast swaths of prime farmland across North America. Imagine how much more self-reliant our communities would be if 30 million acres of lawns were made productive again.
Permaculture is a practical way to apply ecological design principles to food, housing, and energy systems; making growing fruits, vegetables and livestock easier and more sustainable.
The Permaculture Handbook is a step-by-step, beautifully illustrated guide to creating resilient and prosperous households and neighborhoods, complemented by extensive case studies of four successful farmsteads and market gardens.
