Please forward this announcement to friends, who might be interested in our upcoming Permaculture Design Course in the Hudson Valley. We are excited about this course and are ready to welcome new students.
Our lead teacher is Tama Jackson. Tama Jackson is a thoughtful designer and mentor who encourages participation in living systems, so that humans reclaim their role as conscious keystone species in our global ecosystem. Tama spent two years becoming a professional permaculture designer in the Regenerative Design & Nature Awareness Program with Penny Livingston Stark in Bolinis CA. Tama has been an organizer for eco-social and regenerative agriculture events including the 2012 Carbon Farming Course and the annual Northeast Permaculture Convergence and others. Tama currently practices permaculture as a designer, naturalist, and soil biologist with NY's well respected design firm AppleSeed Permaculture LLC.
