Permaculture Earthworks at Sky Mountain Institute
Increase your knowledge of permaculture earthworks during this hands on
3 day workshop taught by Paul Wheaton. You will be able to watch a raw
San Diego hillside side go through a permaculture design process. >From
mapping to final construction to planting out of the installations. It
will all be done during these 3 days. Currently an estimated 350,000
gallons of runoff water runs down through the property untouched. Some
of the earthworks designed and constructed in this class will be placed
and designed to alter this erosive overland flow and to maximize water
capture and retention in the landscape. Earthworks will be constructed
to create cool zones to give plants a reprieve from the hot summer sun
and shield them from the local winds. The earthworks will be mulched
and the construction of a food forest will take place with the planting
of cover crops, fruit trees, and support species trees. Course
participants will have the opportunity for hands on participation and to
contribute during the design process and work on all of the earthworks
