Permaculture Principles to be Introduced
Wednesday, August 25, 2021


Learn how to incorporate permaculture principles into your daily life when the Hailey Public Library presents “Introduction to Permaculture—Part 2.”

Amy Mattias, a certified permaculture designer, will share examples of permaculture principles at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 26, via Zoom. To view it, RSVP to

Permaculture is an approach to garden and yard management that is inspired by arrangements observed in healthy natural ecosystems. Much of its success has been attributed to indigenous traditions, in which the practice is rooted.

 “Permaculture’s seven design principles include observing nature, storing energy and increasing diversity,” said the library’s programs manager Kristin Fletcher. “They work with nature instead of against it. Amy is transforming her home in Gannett using these principles and will describe  how they can be incorporated into a design project of any size and scale.”

 Mattias recently received a Permaculture Design Certification through Earth Activist Training, a Permaculture Institute of North America certified program. Over years of gardening, she has incorporated many permaculture principles into her personal garden as well as in her life as a whole. Aside from her gardening hobby, Amy is a food system reformist, spending her career building a stronger and resilient regionalized food system in southern Idaho.

 Amy is the Program Director for the Sun Valley Institute for Resilience, and within this role she launched the 5B Resilience Garden initiative in spring 2020.
