Permaculture! Getting skills to build our world in balance. NW Permaculture Convergence 10/14 - 16
Matt Bibeau will join Ani and Lyn to talk about permaculture. What is it, and why is it important? How can permaculture help us in these interesting times in which we find ourselves? There is change all around us, and we know we need to transform our culture. What tools does permacuture offer us on a local level?
