Permaculture: Future Directions w/Australian Pc Teacher/Designer Dr. Ross Mars

Dr. Ross Mars is one of the most authoritative permaculture teachers today, having delivered over fifty permaculture courses during the last twenty years. Ross is one of the pioneers for introducing permaculture into the Australian school curriculum, d has instrumental in setting up permaculture-designed gardens in over twenty Australian schools, both primary and secondary, private and state (public) schools.

Ross has written four important books on Permaculture, including Getting Started in Permaculture: 50 Practical Projects to Build and Design Productive Gardens and The Basics of Permaculture Design.

Ross will deliver a talk entitled Permaculture: Future Directions in which he will share his thoughts and observations on the following questions:

  • 1. After almost 40 years, how relevant is Permaculture?
  • 2. What issues do we face in an uncertain future?
  • 3. What opportunities will present themselves for permaculture practitioners?
  • 4. What do we need to do?
  • 5. What is happening in Australia?

Join us for a rare opportunity to learn from this prolific teacher, designer, and writer from the land of Permaculture's origination.

    I did my PDC course in a rural and poor area in Brazil, so it was very interesting to see all the work opportunities available in urban permaculture and how it contrasts to rural permaculture. Dr. Ross Mars was entertaining and answered lots of great questions.

    Dear Leonard Barrett,

    This is my second shot at this "rate & review". In that you put out the effort to put on this event I feel I owe you a more in depth review than I had previously given. I thought Dr. Ross Mars and his presentation was alright. It was a good introduction to Permaculture. I didn't feel I learned very much because I am beyond the introductory stage. But yet I feel I don't know enough about it to ask any questions. I think I'd need to spend some money on a Permaculture course to know enough to be able to ask. But I'm just not ready to spend money on Permaculture right now.

    To get there I bicycled all the way, in all that heat, from NW Portland. This tired me out. I did not have the energy for socializing at the end of the event. I get shy when I'm tired. So I just drank some water that nice blond lady led me to and then left. I assure you no slight was intended.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
