Book Signing with author of The Vegetable Gardener's Guide to Permaculture

Join the Santa Barbara Permaculture Network's event to host a book signing with author Christopher Shein and his newly released book, The Vegetable Gardener's Guide to Permaculture, as a fundraiser to support Santa Barbara City College students and their online campaign to raise funds for a Permaculture Garden at Santa Barbara City College (SBCC).

The Vegetable Gardener's Guide to Permaculture is an inspiring, easy-to-follow, information packed guide that is designed to help readers transform their home & community gardens into productive food forests that will feed them for years to come.

Cost is $10.00

Permaculture is an ancient, but cutting edge technology, that employs design strategies that work with nature, instead of relying on back breaking work, fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides.  The permaculture gardener uses methods that build healthy soil, smothers weeds, and promotes plant life, while recycling waste products from the garden.

Inspired by a prior evnet at SBCC with Ryan Harb from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, whose Permaculture Your Campus garden project won national recognition with a Champions of Change Award at the White House in 2012, students attending the workshop decided they wanted to create something similar at SBCC.

The proposed permaculture garden would be located in front of the SBCC Culinary Arts Department.  Both the SBCC Permaculture Design Course class & the Projects in Sustainability class have already created designs for the garden, with input from the Culinary Arts program, who will use produce from the garden.

I am especially excited since I teach nutrition to the Culinary students at SBCC and am attending the Permaculture Design Course.

    Great! I designed the curriculum for the first Permaculture course at SBCC in 2009, but only got to teach it twice before moving out of state. Just moved back and eager to be involved again.

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.
