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!

March 21-24, 2013: DESIGNING A CULTURE FOR SUSTAINABILITY Workshop at Terra Alta, Portugal

This year, for the first time, Terra Alta will offer an event centered around the “culture” of permaculture. This is a workshop ideal for anybody who works professionally with groups, community organizations and dreams of living an ecological lifestyle with others.

Throughout this four-day course, we will showcase effective strategies, design methods and tools that can create an atmosphere of full participation within a group project. It is helpful for those who are at any stage of project development – in its beginnings or amidst – as well as individuals who are seeking new ways to inspire others and make their ecological dreams come true.

Example exercises will cover topics such as open space technology, group decision-making, consensus, social patterning, non-violent communication, conflict resolution, social justice and dragon dreaming. Students will develop foundational skills in how to maintain social cohesion within a given project and/or organization – how to deal with the diverse personality types that interact within a project so there is a feeling of “success” across all participants.

Many have referred to this workshop a “practice run” for living in an intentional community, while others have used it to further develop ideas they have for ecological projects and even personal homesteads.

Location: Terra Alta, Almoçageme, Sintra, Portugal

Facilitators: Mihail Kossev & Doug Crouch

Language used: English (with help to translate unknown words whenever needed)
