What an honor to be a guest instructor for Alan Booker’s (@eldenbridge) Permaculture Design Certification Course at Wheaton Laboratories (@_paulwheaton) this past week! It’s exciting to see how Inside Edge Strategies and Design and Wild Willow Wellness (@wildwillowwellness) are co-evolving in their mutual vision for being a part of the necessary global cultural shift to living more in relationship and in support of our ecological context. #permaculture #systemsdesign #appropriatetechnology #collaboration
One of our projects for the ATC so far was to install a grey water system for a composting toilet/grey water sink and run it to a mulch ditch with a cottonwood and some willows growing in it. The pipe drainage was dumping into a barrel that had to be emptied by hand occasionally. Now it drains directly to thirsty plants and no one has to fiddle with it. It was cool to learn how to connect pipes together and understand how to use gravity to drain your pipes where you want them.
Chase, thank you for posting all those awesome photos!
This class. Both these classes. These folks were so awesome. You were so kind about my first time cooking for an event. I so appreciated all the awesome help in the kitchen. And, mostly, thank you, to the students, and Alan, and the guest instructors, and Uncle Mud, and Jim for making such a wonderful month of learning and camaraderie.
Thanks Jocelyn. Luckily I don't think I left anything behind. I'm finally back home in Arkansas and looking through the last of my pictures from the trip. There were so many great ATC photos I've gotta post one last round! Hopefully anyone interested in these courses next year can check these out and get an idea of what you're in for.
