Your organizer will give the keynote address for the Texoma Earth Day Festival about our off-the-grid ecovillage forming NE of Dallas, the school that is part of the ecovillage, and Permaculture itself, which underlies it all.
In what grew out of a desire to live in community myself and an increasing awareness that I should be growing my own food, an intentional community was born--an ecovillage of like-minded people who formed a community based on Permaculture principles and practices and who build private homes from durable, attractive, and energy-efficient compressed earth blocks using solar electricity, solar hot water, and rainwater harvesting--in other words an off-the-grid home on a Permaculture farm and food forest.
The organic farm allows members to grow their own food and has internships available for people wanting to live sustainably. The educational facility offers classes to all in sustainable living, Permaculture, homesteading, and organic food production and award scholarships to young farmers.
The keynote address will be from 11 am until 12 noon in Tent One. This is the fifth Texoma Earth Day Festival and I am honored to be the Keynote Speaker.
After the address, I will move to Tent Two to answer questions regarding the ecovillage and to discuss and answer questions about Permaculture gardens, farms, food forests, and intentional communities until 1:20 pm.
After that, I will stay to talk one-on-one about Permaculture, intentional communities, and the Hunt County Ecovillage with anyone wanting further information. Please let me know in advance that you want to talk with me after the event by calling Terry at[masked]-1532.
