Permaculture & Community Experience Weekend - November 20 + 21st

This two-day fundamentals course will give you a truly experiential grounding in the basics of permaculture, community building and regenerative design. During this program we will explore and contribute to a local intentional community featuring rain water catchment, gray water, and sustainable eco-village design!

Integrated into the weekend is a profound multimedia presentation with some of the greatest teachers of our time - Paul Hawken, Julia Butterfly Hill, Van Jones, Thich Nhat Hanh, Joanna Macy and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The highly acclaimed Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream program is an incredible element that sets up the container our two days together.

You will meet and work side-by-side with inspiring people who share your desire to build a green, thriving world of decency and sanity. This program is designed to change lives and build community from the ground up.
