After offering this free Gaiacraft Permaculture Introductory day seven times, I am confident it will be a fun and educational experience for any conscious people who want to participate. Those who are new to permaculture as well as those with an advanced practice are welcome...
Once we start doing, we will know how to proceed.
- Bill Mollison
Join a group of conscious learners in a free introduction to permaculture day in the Heart Gardens, Gumboot Gardens, Elphinstone Rainforest and Mandala Beach of Roberts Creek. Pilgrimage in carpools to the Sunshine Coast, a short ferry ride from Vancouver, to experience an unique and creative introduction to the permaculture paradigm.
After five successful runs of this free intro day, its been a great experience for people who are new to permaculture and those who are deeply experienced.
together we will :
talk about the ethos, principles,
toolkit and metastructure of permaculture,
tour the gardens,
meet some of the food-medicine plants of the Coastal First Peoples,
share a potluck meal,
watch some permaculture movies,
walk in the rainforest,
meet by the ocean,
and have an inspiring day learning and growing with nature.
The day will run on July 22 from 11 am - 5:30 pm, aligning with the bus linked to the 9:20 am ferry from Horseshoe Bay and the 6:30 ferry returning to Vancouver. I will help to co-ordinate a carpool as well. For those who cannot make the monday I may also offer the day on July 23 if there is interest.
There is a limited space so please RSVP to confirm your attendance to [address removed].
Since its a free course, i am trusting that if you ask for a space you will make a commitment to following through and attending the full day :) The spring weather varies, please come dressed to be outside for short periods regardless of weather (dress warm and with rainproof gear or umbrella if you are worried about rain).
Looking forward to a day of wonderful people connecting and sharing about how to be more conscious planetary citizens.
