Introduction to Urban Permaculture

Hear and see local permaculture designers from the Ecological
Division of Merritt College's Landscape Horticulture Department
discuss what's possible in a city. Come see what's been incubating
at this little 7 acre gem in the Oakland Hills. Christopher Shein
will talk about the large food forest and garden built by students
and the Permaculture Design Certificate program. Other classes
offered include Natural Building taught by Kevin and Marisha
Farnsworth and Nikko Bertulis; From Dams to Greywter with Cleo
Woelfle Erskine; Growing Mushrooms with Ken Litchfield; and Cycles of
Change with Grey Kolevzon, and more. Some of these amazing teachers
will be on hand to present a quick overview of their class and what
motivates them to live their passions for urban sustainability. Find
out where and how to plug-in to the local permaculture scene!

Time: 7pm - 9pm
Location: Ecology Center, 2530 San Pablo Ave, near Dwight Way, Berkeley.
