CLARKS GROVE, Minn. -- This steamy weather isn't stopping some in our community from getting out into nature.
The Center for Deep Ecology is putting on a Permaculture Design Course at Harmony Park in Clarks Grove.
It teaches folks to adapt to nature and work with it instead of against it.
Permaculture proponents say it's meant to create stable and productive ecosystems, like living off the land and planting and harvesting your own food.
"And of course, food as I just mentioned is very important as we're all about attempting to raise our own crops," Permaculture Course Instructor Wayne Weiseman said. "We know the quality of the food, how fresh it is, it's a very healthy lifestyle to raise your own crops."
He says they look at everything about a person's lifestyle on a piece of property.
That includes gardening, farming and how to utilize energy and more.
