FREE Intro into Permaculture in Aug. / Meet and Greet

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.

    I seem to be having a bit of a brain cramp and can figure out how to post on the main page.... so...


    Have you all heard of Permaculture Playing cards? They're beautiful! I got a brick (twelve decks) to give as gifts.

    A worthwhile cause to support. Please spread the word. There are only a few days left to order/support the kickstarter. $20 buys a deck. $30 buys two decks. I got the deal for 12 decks and a poster (I'll pick Geoff Lawton for the poster.).

    This is a great way to spread the word about Permaculture and to educate our friends and families on the concepts involved. If nothing else, go check out the beautiful artwork. Paul Wheaton has done a beautiful job designing these cards.

      Believe it or not, I'm not on facebook. I got off two years ago and I'm much happier for it. :) Feel free, though, to post about the cards there. I'm happy to spread the word via anyone. Thanks, Nick.

    Nick, I just joined the group and missed this presentation. I'm new to permaculture and would like to learn more. Will you be having another presentation soon? I actually live really close to where this presentation was held.

    Hi, I've recently moved back to Dallas and look forward to learning and sharing information.

    This sounds great, Nick! I wish there were a maybe option, or a probably option. I'll probably be there. I'm finishing up my online PDC with Geoff. 5 weeks to finish the design final project. I'd love to see a live site, your school & meet you.
