Bioregionalism and Permaculture: Ecological Models for Economic Development
Join us Monday, January 3rd as Andrew Faust brings together Bioregionalism and Permaculture: two elegant design models that allow us to heal ourselves while we heal the land.
The solutions to our economic and environmental problems aren't complex or out of reach. Quite the contrary! Our food, fuel and fiber needs can be met in abundant ways that strengthen community economies by reconnecting people with their local ecologies. By cooperating regionally and designing ecologically we create and insure healthy and secure economies, landscapes and communities that benefit and enrich for generations to come!
Andrew Faust is one of the premier Permaculture teachers and designers in North America with nearly two decades of experience in the field. His passionate and visionary presentation and curriculum has been inspiring and motivating students since his days as an alternative school teacher at Upattinas in Glenmoore, PA. Andrew lived off the grid in West Virginia for 8 years where he designed and built a Permaculture inspired homestead including a 1600 sq ft strawbale house. He moved to Brooklyn in 2007 and has been applying his knowledge to the urban landscape culminating in a Permaculture Design Certification course many consider life changing. He is developing The Center for Bioregional Living in Ellenville, NY with his partner Adriana Magana as a pilot campus for his students, clients and baby daughter Juniper.
