Event Details

A workshop to learn the basics of Permaculture and Restoration Agriculture from Mark Shepard, author of the bestselling Restoration Agriculture.  Around the globe most people get their calories from annual agriculture - plants that grow fast for one season, produce lots of seeds, then die. Every single human society that has relied on annual crops for staple foods has collapsed. Restoration Agriculture explains how we can have all of the benefits of natural, perennial ecosystems and create agricultural systems that imitate nature in form and function while still providing for our food, building, fuel and many other needs - in your own backyard, farm or ranch. Mark's teaching, based on real-world practices, presents an alternative to the agriculture system of eradication and offers exciting hope for our future.

Friday evening is a free event open to the public.  Come to get an introduction to Restoration Agriculture.

(Workshop includes all meals.  Free camping available on-site.  Limited indoor lodging available at additional cost - please contact organizers.)
