Malory & Michael's House
Join us for the next installment of our amazing permablitz season! On Sunday August 25th we'll be convening at Malory, Michael and Morgyn's place in Portland for the day.
Permablitzes are day-long work parties that put permaculture design into action! Imagine more than twenty permaculture folks working side-by-side for six hours resulting in more than 180 labor hours completed in one day, great fun, conversation, and camaraderie as well as experiential learning for all!
Our hosts: Morgyn has been a part of the permaculture community for years both here and in Florida. She, along with Malory and Michael Shaughnessy, hosted one of our Intro to Permaculture Design short courses last winter which spurred them on to some great design ideas of their own. This will be a great example of what's possible in a rental situation, since permaculture is not something reserved for only those who own property; in fact far from it!

This is part of a series of permablitzes in and around Portland in 2013. Taking part in these events is one of the best ways to "put your name in the hat" for permablitzes at your own place in the future!
