An Gáirdín Permagarden Workshop May 14.


The purpose of this course is to provide you with practical skills in order to deal with water and wetlands: how to supply high-quality food production through extreme weather events.

May 14. (Monday) at An Gáirdín – Organic Garden & Ecology Centre


All day Permagarden Workshop

As climate change seems to be an increasingly real occurrence on Earth, we will more than ever be led to facing wet situations.

We will be dressing the full picture of the topic supported by consistent experience on how to set up a garden and a growing area.

Through a landscaping practice based on the natural patterns of water flows, we will focus our interest on structures such as swales and raised beds; transforming the very structure of the land allows us to take advantage of the abundance of water to serve the purpose of bringing more fertility to the garden.

About the Location

An Gáirdín is an ecological and educational center for sustainability whose main focus is to learn how to live again through “making again a garden of this place”. Being a diverse, large and organic garden, the principles of permaculture were introduced to its management last year (2017); everything converges towards An Gáirdín to grow into a permaculture demonstration site.

A 10×20m growing area is already in place. As the land is extremely wet, it would benefit from being redesigned in a way that would maximize the drainage.

Financial participation: to be determined

All welcome. Booking on the An Gáirdín site or here trough checkout.
