A guild is a group of plants, animals, and other organisms which work well together. In Permaculture, a guild can be as simple as a collection of plants in healthy soil in a bed, or as complex as a food forest, fruiting hedge, or intentionally-designed watershed. What type of guilds are right for your needs? Come join us, as we talk about guilds in Permaculture Design.
