Permaculture Action Course

June 2-8, 2017

Join us as we imagine ways to build resilient communities where our grandchildren will thrive. Ryan Rising of the Permaculture Action Network together with Cliff Davis and Jennifer Albanese of Spiral Ridge Permaculture will lead a hands-on practical exploration of how to support our selves, our communities, and our ecosystems so that we all may thrive. Topics will include: natural building, earthworks design and installation, food forestry, community organizing, creative visioning, strategic planning, conflict resolution, and social permaculture. This event will unite and strengthen the Southern Appalachian BioRegional network in particular, though all are welcome to attend and bring these experiences home with you – wherever that may be.
