Perma-what? This interactive workshop introduces the ethics and principles of permaculture, the innovative design system that everyone seems to be talking about, is excited and inspired by(!) --- but can't quite define. Learn how time-tested patterns in nature connect the dots between all things 'Green' and offer a clear road-map to a holistic, healthy and just future. Practical exercises bring patterns to life and help you discover how you can live more sustainably now.
Sliding Scale $5-$10 (benefits ARE Center and Green Phoenix Permaculture). WHO:
Alice Lo has been organizing permaculture workshops and classes since 2006 and is always inspired by people’s ability to restore nature, heal themselves, and strengthen their communities through whole-systems design. She holds a Permaculture Design Certificate from the Fingerlakes Permaculture Institute and earned a Permaculture Teacher Training Certificate in 2009 with Dave Jacke. She serves as a Project Coordinator and member of the Board of Directors for Green Phoenix Permaculture, a non-profit organization focused on sustainability education and ecological design. Alice is grateful to make sharing permaculture part of her life’s work.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
