ILWACO, Wash. — Washington State University Master Gardeners of Pacific County will present a workshop, “Permaculture: Design for Sustainable Living,” from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, June 17, at Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum (115 S.E. Lake St., Ilwaco).

“Permaculture is a system for sustainable living integrating plants, animals, buildings, people and communities,” organizers said. “In other words, it merges the garden and home to create an overall lifestyle that has less impact on the environment.”

Participants will explore the ethics and principles of permaculture design, see examples of its common features and leave with new ideas for sustainable gardening.

Have plant questions or problems? Ask a Master Gardener at their museum plant clinic 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. If possible, bring samples of the problem.

After the workshop, participants are invite to visit the Museum Discovery Garden. It has many plants native to the Pacific Northwest. The Discovery Garden is located behind the museum’s parking lot.
