Intro to Permaculture, Saturday, January 12th, 9am – 5pm, 2013, in Traverse City, 514 Second St. In the Alley. Learn the development and skill-set that permaculture design offers as a way to shift/transition/get yourself moving into a beautiful, abundant here-now-future.
Permaculture is shared/taught as a living entity that continues to evolve. It brings together many wide ranging pieces of knowledge and presents them in an integrated manner. It is a design system that has been codified so that the principles can be taught to western minds. We feel permaculture is necessary and in great need of building healthier culture in the USA, and specifically in our Great Lake State. Permaculture’s living, evolving process renews and reconnects us with the knowledge of how to live in harmony and can be remembered in different ways.
In this day-long workshop, we will focus on the meaning and development of permaculture, the twelve permaculture principals and ethics–focusing on ecology and design, as well as, a specific ecological design template/process including goal setting, site assessment and analysis, design, implementation and evaluation.
Bring nourishment and note-taking goods and a wide, open mind-heart.
$50 suggested donation, Bay Bucks accepted.
Gardening Like A Forest Series, January 15th through February 5th, 2013,
Four (4) Tuesday evenings, in Traverse City, 514 Second St. In the Alley. Our first of the year sharing and example of applying permaculture is to take ourselves to the forest. Join us and learn the ways, the HOW-to’s, and ecological design skills as applied to forest gardening.
Topics covered will include: Forest garden architecture and function, Polyculture and patches and guilds, Scale of permanence, Map-making, Species niche analysis, Forest Garden pattern language, Canopy layer design and more…
We suggest a prerequisite for the Gardening Like a Forest Series is the Intro to Permaculture class (See opportunity above). Already taken a permaculture course and feel this is redundant? You’re right it is, to a certain extent. However, you can attend the Saturday session for a minimal donation of your choice. It’s important to create a shared learning guild as we proceed through this series, mutually benefiting the overall process and experience.
$125 for Gardening Like a Forest Series suggested, Bay Bucks accepted.

Registration is kindly needed in advance.
