Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District will host an introduction to permaculture at the Thompson Free Library on Tuesday March 5th, 2019 at 5:30 pm.
You may be wondering, “what is permaculture?” or “how do I implement these practices on my land?” Steve DeGoosh and Brooke Isham from Land of Milk and Honey Farmstead in Sangerville, ME will be sharing their knowledge and how they have implemented permaculture on their properties, both urban and rural. They will be presenting basic instruction on how to get started and will leave you inspired on how you can interact harmoniously with the landscape around you, while producing food, energy and shelter in a more sustainable way.
Steve DeGoosh (Ph.D) is a former Associate Professor from Northern Michigan University (NMU) in Earth, Environmental and Geographical Sciences, and is a certified permaculture instructor. Brooke Isham (MA) is a graduate of both NMU and Western Michigan University, and is a certified permaculture designer. They are integrating permaculture design into their 16-acre farm, where they raise bees, sheep and chickens, grow vegetables, and make soap.
