April 13th Open House
"Applied Permaculture: Scaling-Up From the Backyard to Your Community"
Take an in-depth look at how to build resiliency, one neighborhood at a time. We will explore both cases of applying permaculture to the landscape-backyard examples as well as community endeavors here in Stelle. We will demonstrate scaling-up:

  • from individual rain gardens to linear food forests
  • from backyard gardening plots to garden co-operatives
  • from backyard hens to pastured chicken production
  • and more!

  • In the morning, we will take a walking tour of Stelle and show you some of the neighborhood's examples of sustainable living-our wind turbine, rain gardens, and more. After lunch, we will tour CSC’s 8.7-acre property that adjoins Stelle, focusing on its current community use and future design aims, and will also touch upon how to design self-directed work enterprises and foster social permaculture.



    This presentation will be a joint program by Rebecca Wilson, co-founder of Midwest Permaculture (shown above), and Ernest Rando, CSC member and permaculturist in Stelle.

    Schedule:
    10:00 am: INTRODUCTION TO STELLE & CSC
    11:00 am: WALKING TOUR
    12:30 pm: LUNCH
    1:30 pm: APPLIED PERMACULTURE WORKSHOP

    We appreciate your contributions of $10 for the morning tour and lunch and $15 for the afternoon workshop.
