Social Forestry with Tom Ward Advanced Permaculture Certificate Course
Dates: October 14-16 and November 11-13, 2011 Location: Little Applegate, Oregon Description: This 6 day advanced course introduces students to Social Forestry, a field of ecosociology that connects villages and communities to their forested water catchment basin. Here in a developed industrial empire, the forests are lonely. We have lost our sense of living with forests as friends. This Social Forestry course will explore reconnecting with forests through ecological knowledge, the use of hand tools and woodcrafts, seasonal festivals and work cycles, children's stories, pilgrimages and stewardship covenants. We will learn ecological assessment, carbon sequestration methods, restoration forestry and the crafts and products that can be enjoyed while we are re-establishing our heart space and wonder in the woods. The PDC is a prerequisite for getting an advanced certificate for this course, however you may have the certificate held until PDC completion in the future. The course is open to all who have a working knowledge of permaculture. Instructor: Tom Ward Cost: $420 if paid in full by September 25; $500 after; includes camping. Bring your own food. Additional lodging may be available. Contact: Siskiyou Permaculture 541-482-7909, firstname.lastname@example.org www.siskiyoupermaculture.com
