Principles of sustainability, centered on the video teaching kit from David Holmgren, co-originator of Permaculture. The path to sustainability can be fraught with many confusions, false leads, risks and inefficiencies. A simple set of guiding principles that have wide, even universal application, can be extremely useful as a checklist when considering the inevitably complex options that lay before us. These “Beyond Sustainability” principles can be applied to our personal, economic, social and political structures. In addition to the videos, we will have class discussions and interactive exercises. A booklet summarizing the content of the class and more will be provided, and there will be a 1 hour lunch break.
Register soon to reserve your spot! Space is limited.
This class will be held at an urban permaculture home, and will include a site tour and an optional permaculture lunch, where we will attempt to employ all 12 principles.
Please RSVP miles58 at Yahoo dot com if interested in the optional lunch will be provided for a sliding scale of $7 to $15. Mostly from our garden, and prepared by Angela: Frittata (eggs), garden salad, local bread, and rhubarb crisp or cobbler.
