Project: Terrell House Permaculture Living & Learning Center

Posted by Dee Clark over 10 years ago

Join us in this major step toward transforming an underused university property into a beautiful and productive foodscape and UMaine's first permaculture demonstration site! Come for all or part of the day.

Community Garden Installation at University of Maine Sustainability House

Orono, Maine – Volunteers from the University of Maine and surrounding communities are invited to participate in the creation of a community garden at UMaine's Terrell House Permaculture Living & Learning Center (PLLC) on April 27.

The free public event, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at 491A College Ave., in Orono, will launch the permaculture demonstration site, where people can learn low-maintenance, sustainable cultivation techniques while building a community garden that will be used by students, organizations and the broader community.

Breakfast will be provided for volunteers from 9:00-10:00 and lunch will be potluck. For more information about volunteering or to request a disability accommodation, contact Mike Emery, Terrell House volunteer and outreach coordinator, 207.215.7441.

Terrell House PLLC, a collaboration between the University of Maine Office of Sustainability and the nonprofit Stillwater SHIFT, Inc., provides space for educational events, sustainability research and resident stewardship. The community garden project at Terrell House has received support from UMaine Facilities Management, Graduate Student Government, the Intermedia MFA Program and Environmental Studies Coalition, as well as Argyle Acres farm. More information about Terrell House PLLC is available online (umaine.edu/sustainability/community/terrell-house).

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
