Permaculture Strategies for Cities
There is so much potential in cities to reclaim space, rethink community and go from dependent consumers to empowered producers.
In this workshop we will discuss all kinds of urban permaculture solutions, including appropriate technology like wicking beds and rocket ovens, 'social permaculture' ideas about organizing community, alternative economics and more. Also spending time on David Holmgren's latest work - Retrosuburbia - and his brilliant strategies for retrofitting homes, turning backyards to gardens and food forests, and reviving home economics.
If you are an urban dweller and want to see your community make a shift, this workshop is for you.
May 31: 8:00 am - 10:00 am (2 hrs)
