Agro-Ecosystems: A Permaculture Practicum at Spiral Ridge Permaculture

Earthworks - Soil Fertility - Agroforestry - Animals

October 9-13, 2014


Join us this fall for our Permaculture Practitioner Training Series. Permaculture Practitioner Training is a conscious effort to provide on-the-ground training in regenerative land management and cultural repair.

The first training in this series is, Agro-Ecosystems: Hands-on work in: Earthworks, On Farm Soil Fertility, Agroforestry, Animals and Small Scale Permaculture Plant Nurseries.

In this training, you will develop your skills and gain hands-on experience as you build a small scale regenerative farming system. You will help to establish a coppice agroforestry system that is passively irrigated by rain water, fertilized by animal grazing and planted with tree crops. This system is designed to supply the homestead with fuelwood, animal fodder, food, craft material, and more. You will be directly involved in the hands-on implementation of this system.

Workshop begins Thursday, October 9, 2014, in the afternoon and ends early evening, Monday, October 13.

Includes a live webinar session with Dave Jacke, author of the two volume set, Edible Forest Gardens and the soon-to-be-released Coppice Agroforestry.

Where in Tennessee? I'm going to be in Knoxville that weekend with my wife doing stuff that she likes and I hate.

Seriously, I banged around the website for 10 minutes trying to find out before I gave up. Why isn't that kind of info on the homepage or listed on the 'About' page?

Not the worst website ever, but someone is seriously enamored of their JavaScript and my NoScript is screaming 'Foul'.

The course is in Summertown, TN, about 70 miles southwest of Nashville. I used to have a Google map on each registration page but I must have disabled it accidentally. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Let me know if you have any further questions.
