Join us for an evening with Permaculture teacher Christopher Shein and a discussion of his new book, The Vegetable Gardener's Guide to Permaculture. Learn how to live in harmony with both nature and neighbors to produce and share an abundant food supply with minimal effort. Shein highlights everything you need to know to start living off the land lightly, including how to create rich, healthy, and low-cost soil, blend a functional food garden and decorative landscape, share the bounty with others, and much more.

This inspiring, easy-to-follow, information-packed, practical guide will help you transform your garden into a food forest that feeds you for years to come. The event is free, and books will be available to purchase.
