Positively Revolting on 09-30-11 Permaculture -getting skills to build our world in balance
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?
The Northwest Permaculture Convergence will be held October 14 - 16th. With supporting events around the convergence there are opportunities to get involved in this transformative movement; providing opportunities for our bio-region to take a leap forward in the work that we need to do to transition from a degenerative to a regenerative culture.
