PORT ANGELES — Permaculture architect Hank Gibson will present “Permaculture in the Garden” at 6:30 p.m. Monday.
The lecture on permaculture — a design system for creating sustainable human environments — will be at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St.
Gibson will delve into a brief history of permaculture, a detailed review of ethics and an exploration of permaculture sites around the world — from small urban backyards to expansive acreage sites.
He will also share an introduction to edible forest gardens and community resilience food growing projects. In tandem with Gibson’s presentation, the North Olympic Library System — which oversees public libraries in Port Angeles, Sequim, Forks and Clallam Bay — will offer free vegetable seeds and seed-saving education.
Gibson has been interested in permaculture ideology for more than 35 years and has been actively involved as a practitioner and educator for the past decade.
The permaculture presentation is part of the library’s summer reading program, “Build a Better World.”
