A one and a half hour presentation by Nicholas (Nick) Burtner will be given followed by an urban permaculture / backyard food forest tour (in the making). A very positive and open discussion pretty much about anything related will follow. Once completed you can obtain an Introduction into Permaculture certificate that states you have completed an Intro in Permaculture and can be used for continuing education as well. The location is at a Plano, TX residence with a backyard full of permaculture goodies including: rain water harvesting, gray water bed filtration and use, urban food forestry, serious composting, strategic permaculture gardening and more.
About Nicholas Burtner:
After being diagnosed with the permaculture bug in late 2011, Nick went terminal and couldn't help but to learn, practice, and teach permaculture wherever he went. He has attended internships at the Permaculture Research Institute of Australia, obtained a permaculture design certification from Geoff Lawton and Bill Mollison, and has attended the Earthship Academy for natural and recycled building techniques in Toas, NM. Nick now calls North Texas his home and has opened a school named Working With Nature Learning, Research, and Healing Center. He is working towards a harmonious relationship with anyone who is serious about earth care, people care and anyone who truly wants to change their lives and live free.
