Supplies aren’t required for this class. But feel free to bring materials to take notes if you’d like.
What is Zero-Waste and why is it important?
Zero-Waste refers to the amount of trash an individual or an entire community will send to the landfill. Although Zero-Waste is the dream goal, it is important for everyone to start decreasing the amount they send to the landfill. The sum total of all of our efforts could make a difference in supporting global ecosystems.
What is Permaculture?
Permaculture is a way of incorporating systems into landscaping that will benefit plants, animals, and humans for years to come. Permaculture methods are defined by systems that self-regulate and perpetuate in accordance with the local environment.
What does it mean to become Verdant?
Verdant means "to be green" and is usually used to describe a lucsious garden or grassy field. However, when we become Verdant, then we stop thinking like a consumer and start thinking like plants. We become aligned with Nature and become more connected to it.
