Following on the Introduction to Permaculture class, the focus in Permaculture Plants of Interest is on choosing the best plants for a site, with an emphasis on incorporating edible and native plants into the landscape planting design. Students will be introduced to a myriad of permaculture plants and learn the attractive and beneficial qualities they offer, including historical uses and wildlife benefits to structure and color -- all considerations in creating a successful and sustainable landscape.
