The focus will be Permaculture: Earth Care, People Care, Fair Share.

Permaculture is the practice of working with rather than against nature.

It involves observing what already exists and using set design principles to create a system that can provide energy, clean water and food, all whilst preserving and enhancing the natural ecosystem. This practical workshop will cover why permaculture is so much more than just gardening, how it is used in communities around the world including practical examples, and an introduction to designing landscapes and community,

Paula Paananen, an Australian Quaker, will be the speaker.

Registration deadline is December 10, 2018.
