Permaculture uses ecology as the basis for designing integrated systems of food production, housing, appropriate technology and community development. It offers practical, creative approaches to the problems of diminishing resources and guides participants in observing patterns of energy use and the collection and storage of these resources. Permaculture’s principles and ethics can help individuals, communities and families to develop their own resources into stable and continuously viable homes and properties. These principles can be applied to your own property and lifestyle in both rural and urban environments alike. These workshops will introduce and expand on the foundation principles of Permaculture and assist participants in new approaches and patterns of property design and lifestyle that will help secure a more sustainable, environmentally supported future.
Participants will explore systems thinking, hybrid solutions, and the development of natural capital on residential properties. Participants will have an opportunity to complete a number of exercises assessing their property and lifestyle, looking for opportunities to enhance a more balanced living system. We will also talk about community action and cooperative market gardening. Attendees are encouraged to bring aerial photographs of their property, lot maps, and blueprints of their property. (optional dinner discussion follows, off-site)
