Michael Judd says that if permies.com brings in $5000 to his kickstarter, then permies.com can decorate an entire page in his new book!
I'm not sure what we would put there just yet, but the opportunities for comedy are endless!

In May of 2012, Michigan became the first midwestern state to welcome Austrian farmer and permaculture visionary sepp holzer, along with his assistants Judith Anger and Immo Fiebrig. As part of our course, students installed one of Sepp’s signature “Krater gartens” at the Catherine Ferguson Academy in Detroit. This was a powerful hands on experience for all involved, and resulted in an agricultural transformation that continues to inspire awe and hope.

As Sepp realizes the global demand for Holzer Permakultur, he has given his blessing for this team to begin teaching and installing his systems and techniques around the world. They have chosen historic Highland Park, Michigan, birthplace of the Ford Motor Company as their first destination.

Accomplished international designers certified in Holzer Permakultur, Judith Anger, Immo Fiebrig and Johnny Peham have authored the urban Permaculture book “Jedem Sein Grun!” (Everyone has the right to grow). The book's creation was overseen by Sepp, has been very successful in Europe, and will see a 2013 release in the United States. This is the beginning of Sepp’s legacy, as taught by his most intrepid and skilled graduates.

Our 3 day course will feature hands on site evaluation, design and installation at 3 separate Highland Park sites - 2 residential homes, Hugelkultur beds, and one large scale Holzer Krater Garten, to be located at Distributed Power’s new Rhiza Farms.

Your host for Team Sepp: Holzer Permakultur USA is Nathan Ayers, director of Chiwara Permaculture Research & Education. Nathan instructed the first Permaculture Design Courses taught in Highland Park in 2010 & 2011, and continues to work with his graduates through the Highland Park Permaculture Guild.

Join Judith, Immo, Johnny and Nathan for the launch of this historic course and installation. Take home the knowledge and skills to begin installing Holzer Permakultur this year, where you live.

Early registration for this 3 day course is $149, and includes a welcome breakfast reception on Friday, September 28th.

After September 5th, registration is $199.

- A Meal plan featuring vegetarian, farm sourced cuisine is available for $25 per day (3 meals a day)
- Lodging on site is available on a first come, first served basis, for $29 per day
