Join us as we head to the Outer Sunset in San Francisco to explore true metro-opulence as found in a pair of urban oases. Experience the wisdom of the watershed garden model, indulge in reclaimed-materi als greenhouse delight, get the scoop on composting toilets, and dial in on bio-fuels. This is a day-deep dose of sustainable urban wisdom from two of the true masters, Ben Jordan and Deverie Gehlen.
We'll take in a "triple dug" garden, an amazing automated "urine charge" siphon system that dilutes household pee with water and adds it to the drip irrigation, a picture of designing for abundance in steep, sandy hillside conditions, harmony and fertility through worms, amazing creativity in reused materials and so much more.
Presenters Ben and Deverie are truly among San Francisco's Permaculture gurus, and this is a grand opportunity to sit with them.
We'll share a delicious potluck lunch at our first site.
