Hi everyone -  

I'm Melinda, from the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC.  I've gardened for a long time, but am excited about adding this and the next permaculture class to my "intensive gardening self-study" program.  Thanks to COVID, I've begun making some changes to my yard that I believe will be permaculture-friendly but I am hoping to be able to develop a more full-scale design plan with this class.  My biggest challenge is that my yard is partially shaded, but I've done a lot of shade mapping in the past year to better understand what I can plant where and when.  I'm looking forward to getting started!

Welcome. I think the design process you will go through over the duration of the three courses will really help you make a master plan for the garden and all the other elements of your landscape.
