According to the USDA, permaculture is an ecological design science for creating agriculture as "the cultivation of high-value crops under the protection of a managed tree canopy." Utilized worldwide, Permaculture, Agroforestry and Forest Farming systems help growers diversify crop production while conserving natural resources and improving ecological health. Permaculture or permanent agriculture is designed by humans, but mimics patterns in the natural world. Ayers will cover and share resources on how to plan, design, plant and maintain a permaculture designed forest farm system on properties of all sizes. 

Information will also be provided about MAEAP and Phase I credit will be offered to attendees.
