Living Permaculture Course

Immerse into our learning circle. as we explore land stewardship skills & practices that are integral to reclaiming our connection with the Earth. These skills are indigenous practices that have been passed on through stories and daily rituals. In this series, we'll be collectively exploring our own ancestral roots, how land stewardship shaped our ancestors, and how this informs ways we may carry these skills forward in our lives.  

Through a mix of hands-on gardening, permaculture design, and ecological study, we will learn key steps to cultivating an abundance of food and medicine. From these foundational skills, we'll be exploring how we can live these practices in an accessible and integrated way to our own lives.

[April 23rd - July 2nd]

I: Land Stewardship as Ritual

Our first class will focus on weaving together permaculture principles, ancestral land stewardship practices and how they relate to our current lives. With this as our framework, we'll dive into the skills in permaculture design such as site analysis, sector analysis, and the power of observation on a micro and macro scale.
