Herbs in the Landscape: A Permaculture Perspective
In this dynamic presentation, we will explore the ways in which our common medicinal plants interact in the landscape. What can individual herbs and plant associations tell us about the ecology of our gardens and bioregions? How can we use medicinal herbs in our gardens to promote diversity and increase the health of other crops? Using principles of permaculture design we will discuss the multiple functions of medicinal herbs in the landscape, and how we can use medicinal plants to build resilient, productive, and beautiful gardens. By thinking broadly about health in both humans and ecosystems, we can use these tools to promote the conservation of at risk medicinal plants.
