Advanced Permaculture Class 2014

Hi, I'm helping the good folks at bigsmallfarm.org to spread the word about advanced permaculture class they're doing in Florida in January. I believe this information will be of interest to the members here but if this is not so, please let me know and I will delete it or the moderators can delete it.

Jono Neiger, who has over 20 years of experience as permaculture designer and teacher, will be doing 7-day in depth Advanced Permaculture Whole Farm Design Course (structured as 2 parts; you may take one or both of them). During the course, students will design a master plan for Big Small Farm – 400 acres non-profit farm incubator. While it will be used to design a large rural property, the design process would be virtually the same for designing an urban lot, so don't let the word “farm” scare you away!

All the details are here - http://bigsmallfarm.org/news/whole-farm-design-advanced-permaculture-course-jono-neiger-january-2014/

And we even have a cool poster too - http://bigsmallfarm.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/APDC-BSF-January-2014-Flier.pdf

We hope to see some of you there! :)

    I though this was a local Vancouver group. What is a Florida event doing here?

    Yes and we still have 2 slots, although the format has been changed to be more hands-on design workshop and less of a traditional class. Please check http://bigsmallfarm.org/news/whole-farm-design-advanced-permaculture-course-jono-neiger-january-2014/ if you're interested.

    Permaculture design should be of interest to all citizens of the world, so feel no shame, promote away! It's too far for me to travel though. I will be flying from Vancouver to The Netherlands on the 10th. I am due for a family visit. If I could sail or get there without burning fossil fuels I would. We are a society in transition and one step at a time, I think within soon I could!

    Depends on the backyard and the resources available to you (like, can you build a greenhouse?) but I've heard Bill Mollison say that as a very rough rule of thumb one person can grow all the food he needs on 1 acre. He also said that amount of food you can grow is limited only by quality of your design :)
