Agro-Ecosystems: A Permaculture Practicum Course

Agro-Ecosystems: A Permaculture Practicum

Earthworks - Soil Fertility - Agroforestry - Animals

October 9-13, 2014

Join us this fall for our Permaculture Practitioner Training Series. Permaculture Practitioner Training is a conscious effort to provide on-the-ground training in regenerative land management and cultural repair.

The first training in this series is, Agro-Ecosystems: Hands-on work in: Earthworks, On Farm Soil Fertility, Agroforestry, Animals and Small Scale Permaculture Plant Nurseries.

In this training, you will develop your skills and gain hands-on experience as you build a small scale regenerative farming system. You will help to establish a coppice agroforestry system that is passively irrigated by rain water, fertilized by animal grazing and planted with tree crops. This system is designed to supply the homestead with fuelwood, animal fodder, food, craft material, and more. You will be directly involved in the hands-on implementation of this system.

Workshop begins Thursday, October 9, 2014, in the afternoon and ends early evening, Monday, October 13.

Includes a live webinar session with Dave Jacke, author of the two volume set, Edible Forest Gardens and the soon-to-be-released Coppice Agroforestry.
