Geoff Lawton is currently teaching a 2-week Permaculture Design Certification intensive sponsored by Green Phoenix Permaculture at Epworth Camp in High Falls, NY. After this course and some classes on the West Coast this summer, he will be leaving teaching to focus on this international permaculture development. His course with Green Phoenix two years ago was instrumental in re-energizing permaculture in this region and he has been a great ally and advisor to many here and on the west coast. Please come support him and Nadia and send them off with all NYC has to offer! - Alice
