Greetings Permies One and All!
We have postponed the start of this year’s community-based Permaculture Design Course form January to March. This means that the four principle weekends for the course are as follows: March 15-17, April 26-28, June 14-16 and August 16-18. We are soooo close to having enough committed folks on board to make this course a go – please help to spread the word so we can make the magic happen once again this year!
In addition to all of the intense and wonderful core permaculture curriculum, the first year of the course focused on careful observation, dialogue and design with the people most closely connected to the site – the parishoners of Townsite Anglican church (“zone 1” if you like). This year we will continue this process but moving it further out into “zone 2” – the geographical community of Townsite. Once again we will undertake a design process and a couple of fabulous work bees to continue the transformation of the site into a wonderfully rich, diverse and productive community space. We will also have site visits and design exercises and all students home properties (within the region). We will also have the wonderful resource of the past year’s students to add into the mix!
Please join us for this adventure. We are certain you will find it thoroughly enjoyable, meaningful and so very useful in your own path towards sustainability and community abundance!
Ron Berezan and Erin Innes
