About the Webinar

Lots of people are talking about permaculture, but there is very little information about how it could be applied to commercial farming in the US. In this webinar we'll help remedy that gap by providing an overview of farm-scale permaculture, focusing on opportunities and challenges of diversification, perennial crop development, and market development for perennial crops. For each topic we'll draw on our own ongoing research projects as well as existing literature, and refer participants to resources for learning more or getting involved.
