Permaculture in action: Planning for new plantings at the Charlotte Library

Get hands-on with the newly expanded library. Under the guidance of landscape architect Jim Donovan and permaculture edicator Karen Tuininga, participants will learn landscaping design basics, then use them to develop plans for educational opportunities for the library’s outdoor space. This includes a restored wetland.

The program will also bring into the mix holistic permaculture principles. Gain practical skills while doing meaningful work for the library. 

Sessions will be held in February and March. No prior experience required, but some knowledge of permaculture principles and native plants is helpful. Continuing education credit may be available. 

Sessions: 

Saturdays, Feb. 1 and 8, March 14, 8:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m., evenings Feb. 13, 17, 20 and 24, March 2 and 5, 7–9 p.m.

Contact Margaret Woodruff for details and to register (by Jan. 30) at 425-3864 or margaret@charlottepubliclibrary.org.
