Permaculture and Sustainability

Suzanne Maxwell, an active Master Gardener volunteer since 2010, a team leader for Homescapes Solutions and chair of Placitas Community Library’s Landscape Committee, will speak about Permaculture and Sustainability at the Garden-ing with the Masters class at Meadowlark Senior Center in Rio Rancho On Tuesday, May 6 at 7:15pm.

Suzanne defines permaculture as a philosophy for living, gardening, working with nature and growing food, that reflects care for people, care for the earth, and a reinvestment in our future by limiting our needs. Suzanne is certified in permaculture design and has a passion for sustainability. The property she and her husband live on in Placitas has been set up as a demonstration site for sustainability and permaculture principles. This Gardening with the Masters class will include photos illustrating elements of permaculture and sustainability, and handouts to help participants think about how they might apply sustainability and permaculture thinking to their own homes and land
