How can we create resilient, regenerative cities and suburbs? Permaculture, an ecological approach to design, shows us the way. Though land may be limited, cities are rich in other resources, especially human resourcefulness. This workshop will offer specific techniques and strategies for food production, energy security, and community resilience in metropolitan areas.
Toby will share the passion, focus, wisdom and wealth garnered from his decades of experience with resilient living via urban permaculture design.
You will hear examples, see pictures, learn about the specifics and participate in class exercises that will engage you and leave you with tons of practical and hands-on ideas for your own yard, neighborhood and city.
Forest garden design and use – get your questions answered.
Social, economic and energy aspects of city and town life – practical solutions that work.
Urban food, water and land issues and how to solve them.
Visible and invisible structure design for the specific challenges in cities and towns.
