WELCOME BACK CLAUDIA !!
This workshop is an opportunity for those new to Permaculture and for those who want to learn more about Permaculture Design Principles. Claudia's community building approach is wonderful and resonates with the needs of Jersey City's burgeoning urban ag movement. There are many facets to making a community garden installation successful in a challenged urban environment and we are so delighted that she can be with us to share her deep knowledge and experience.
Director of the New York Permaculture Exchange,
Permaculture teacher and consultant, Claudia Joseph
has practiced Permaculture on both coasts and is developing
the first food forest in NYC - a useful landscape for food,
medicine, craft, habitat and storm water mitigation (key in JC !) -
at the Old Stone House in Washington Park, (Park Slope, Brooklyn)
with students and volunteers.
This day-long session will introduce Permaculture concepts
and show how they can be applied in an urban landscape.
Diversity - economic, cultural, and environmental - offers
solutions to many of today's challenges and is one
of the overarching themes of Permaculture.
Claudia will discuss this nature-based approach to
interconnected systems and explain how communities
are responding to climate change, high-energy costs
and soil toxicity by practicing Permaculture design.
This workshop is designed as an INTENSIVE and includes
instruction and interactive break out session on
'How To Design A Site Map' for your project.
$40 Fee includes Materials & Lunch which will be
served by Host Venue St. Paul's Church.
