Permaculture Design Intensive in Northern California
Please post and/or announce:
PERMACULTURE DESIGN WORKSHOP TO BE HELD IN CALIFORNIA
Dan and Cynthia Hemenway, editors of The International Permaculture Solutions
Journal, will lead an intensive 10-day permaculture design workshop Aug. 6-15,
1999, near Forest City, in Northern California.
The initial weekend is a stand-alone workshop where participants produce a
rough draft permacualture design. Starting monday, particpants flesh out and
refine the design, delivering a report to the residents the following
Saturday. Instruction during the week is confined to topics needed to produce
this specific design. The design will integrate human activity with the
contour, soil, solar energy, and water flows of the site to provide water,
food, shelter, energy, and other patterns supportive of the residents.
Creating a joyous and enjoyable setting is central to the design goals. Sunday
afternoon, Dan will conclude the workshop with a clinic to discuss
permaculture-related problems that participants bring from their own
situations. Participants can register for the full workshop or just the
initial weekend. There is a limit on enrollment.
The workshop is designed to meet the needs of a variety of participants
including: people wishing to learn to design their own homes; people seeking
strong preparation for the certificate Permaculture Design Course; certified
permaclturists seeking advanced training; and present or future students of
the Online Permaculture Design Course who will use the workshop to meet their
design project requirement.
Child care can be arranged with advance notice. Send SASE for a complete
flyer. Inquire also if you wish to host permaculture or forest workshops in
your area. Limited scholarships for Native Americans, women, minorities, and
others are available.
