Event description

Description

Come and find out how incorporating simple polyculture designs into annual growing plans can increase overall yield and variety, help improve soil structure and moisture retention, build fertile soil, attract pollinators and insect pest predators while increasing wildlife habitats. Going beyond traditional companion planting, this workshop will explain how to use permaculture guilds to create plant alliances among species with different niches above and below ground, in which each plant contributes to the benefit of all. It will include information about how to integrate unusual edible perennials with more common annuals. Suitable for all levels of experience.

Susannah Hall is the Head Gardener at Cecil Sharp House and a permaculture and permablitz designer. She offers training in permaculture design and gardening for Permablitz London and helps to organise the London Permaculture Festival.
