2-Day Introduction to Permaculture
Oct 26 2013 09:00
Oct 27 2013 17:30
Are you seeking practical solutions towards a more sustainable lifestyle?
We believe that permaculture offers a key.
Permaculture uses whole system thinking to create productive environments that replicate the resiliency, diversity, and stability of natural systems. Through the framework of Permaculture we can design for abundance and empower ourselves towards more sustainable choices.
You can apply permaculture to any setting or climate – your garden, your farm or ranch, urban and suburban community structures, watershed systems, and your own inner ecology. Permaculture is focused on taking challenges and transforming them into solutions.
Through lecture and hands-on components, this 2-day course will offer an overview of the basics of Permaculture. Topics will include:
• Permaculture solutions for sustainability
• Creative problem solving
• Core routines of nature connection
• Permaculture ethics & principles
• Application of permaculture principles & ecological processes
• Methods of deisgn: designing from patterns to details, zone and sector system, scale of permanence, site analysis
• Registration will be from 8:00–8:45am. Please plan to arrive early – the course will begin promptly at 9:00am.
• Lunches on both Saturday and Sunday will be a potluck-style meal so please bring food to share with others.
• You are welcome to camp overnight on Saturday. If you are camping on-site, you are responsible for your own dinner Saturday evening and breakfast Sunday morning. (The Coast Cafe in town is a good, local option for meals.)
