I am a community developer at Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, KY. My official title is so glamorous. Are you ready? Head Gardener! Ha, ha.
Anyway, part of my job is to hold workshops that will be well attended and draw interest, not only for the seminary but the surrounding Asbury University, Wilmore, Nicholasville, Lexington communities. There is some existing knowledge of permaculture on the University side of the street, but it is a new subject here at the seminary.
I am looking for those interested in teaching introductory permaculture ethics and one-off permaculture topics workshops. There is a huge emphasis here on the community aspect of things. We have an existing community garden, small orchard, bees, and chickens, but these placements were not planned by a permaculture designer, so there are definite improvements to be made. The surrounding homes in Kalas Village were built with the environment in mind (not sure of all the details), and there is a beautiful, large facility on site for holding classes when the weather is unfavorable.
The teachers I am looking for will be at the very least considerate in their speech and not derogatory toward Christian views. This will be a time of proving that permaculture is a design "science" and not a religion of its own.
