Register for courses on March 27th & 28th, April 18th & 19th, June Date TBD, July Date TBD, and October Date TBD

Join us for a two-day workshop that will change your life and could change the world. This course is right for you whether you are new to Permaculture, looking for insight into the workings of a practicing permaculture farm, or seeking guidance with the design process. The only prerequisite? The hope that when we think ethically and use ecological design principles, humans can be a vital and beneficial part of the natural world.

Permaculture ethics and principles can be practiced on any piece of land and with all sorts of animals. You’ll learn principles, design methods, and strategies that will benefit a suburban backyard, a community garden, a local food co-op, or the abandoned farmstead you inherited from your grandmother. You’ll learn management strategies for livestock that allow them to do what they do best, lead good lives, and produce a yield.

Fox Hollow Farm is a family managed, multi-species, mob grazing grass farm that incorporates Permaculture Design. Come learn how we designed a regenerative landscape that mimics nature and follows ecological principles. A landscape that allows us to harvest high quality food and resources for our family and community, all while investing in future fertility.

Day One: We will spend the morning in introductions of each other and to permaculture. Ernest will present on Permaculture Ethics, the ecological principles of Permaculture Design, and lead a discussion on global situations that are creating local opportunities in our culture for agricultural and artistic change. After the provided lunch, walk around the farm and see how we implement the use the permaculture principles to develop business and agricultural strategies on Fox Hollow and get inspired by how you can practice them yourself. The evening’s festivities will include an optional potluck and movie screening of the David Holmgren’s documentary “Relocalization”.

Day Two: We will focus on doing hands-on Permaculture Design. In the morning, we will learn how to use analysis tools and design strategies. After another delicious lunch, we put those tools to use and create a basic regenerative management plan for several individuals’ landscapes. Then you’ll head out to home and start changing the world.

Please feel free to bring your own contour maps of your community or private property.
