Jesse Watson on Permaculture & Regenerative Food Systems
Jesse Watson will give an overview of permaculture and describe how home gardeners can use this design system and set of techniques to grow perennial food crops, support healthy ecosystems, and adapt to climate change. He will begin by asking: how can we grow our own food and heal ecosystems at the same time? Using several sites in Maine as examples, he will show photos and discuss details of the permaculture design process and methods. Watson operates Midcoast Permaculture Design in Rockland and has been doing landscape design, farm planning and installation work for residential and farm clients since 2009.
