This class is the first in a series exploring the Permaculture method of sustainable design. This first class will be taught by David Cody of UPISF.
Permi-curious? We can design our way out of the social and environmental nightmare we’ve created on Earth: climate change, species extinction, poverty, inequity and more. Hear stories from real, on the ground, projects showing ways we can meet our needs while being beneficial to all life. Hear stories about Permaculture design. If you love good food, regenerative farming, natural building, community building, renewable energy and are curious about a design system that ties it all together then come check out this introduction.
We’ll discuss practical ways you can use permaculture design in your life to grow your own healthy food, harvest and clean your own water, build your own home, transition your career, reduce your carbon footprint and increase your carbon 'rootprint' while building lasting, quality community relationships with people that share your values.
Take an afternoon to reawaken your hope for the future of the environment and people everywhere. Ask questions and discuss what you want to know. See images and stories, permaculture design techniques and strategies in San Francisco. This is an opportunity to meet like-minded people, create community and have a good time!
