Event has passed


Landscape designer Jesse Watson speaks about using permaculture methods to manage erosion and promote sustainable habitat at Merryspring Nature Center on Tuesday, March 13, at noon.

Permaculture, a design system for regenerating landscapes and ecosystems, can offer powerful and intuitive design solutions for dealing with water, erosion, and ecological systems. In this presentation, Watson highlights some Maine case studies of permaculture design principles and methods used to effectively manage water, grow perennial food crops, and adapt to climate change. 

Watson is a certified permaculture designer.  In 2009 he started Midcoast Permaculture, a landscape design/build and sustainability consultation firm serving residential, business and institutional clients. He lives with his family in Rockland.
