Introduction to Permaculture for Kids

Saturday, October 1 at 8:45 am (PT)

This class is a playful one-day exploration of recognizing patterns in our world and strategies for living by Permaculture principles, for kids ages 8-14. We will visit several Permaculture sites in the neighborhood to see Permaculture in action, and get some hands-on experience with rainwater harvesting, vegetable gardening, chickens, composting, and native food harvesting. Storytelling, music, and dancing will be involved. Class size is limited to 15 participants. Taught by Leona Davis and Julie Newcombe.

Class will be held just three blocks from the Mesquite Tree Permaculture site, one and a half miles north of downtown Tucson.

Saturday, October 1
8:45AM – 4:45PM. This class includes a lunch break at the same time as the Intro to Permaculture class for adults, so kids and parents in class can get together for lunch.

Cost: $29 – includes all course materials, a craft to take home, and a native food snack
