Event description


This workshop is for all the people on the move–

nomads, between places, travelers, those lost, at cross-roads, looking, refusing, and/or displaced – those on Walkabout. Permaculture the is conscious design, redesign and practice of ecological living for all aspects of life.

To live well in our rapidly changing & unknowable world requires sharp refocusing of Permaculture taking into account emerging worldviews, paradigms, opportunities and threats. Join us in urgent exciting explorations into food, health, self-care, technology, housing, transport, conservation, ecopsychology, Social Permaculture, decolonization, wilding, survival, regenerative practices, ancient and new.

What people are saying about our workshops:

"Thank you, thank you, thank you! Bridget, you and Charlie are amazing and I benefited so much from being in your 'field' for 2 whole days. I am inspired and expanded. Paradox and inner conflict can take time to resolve, but these tools you share offer a 'real' way for me to think about things differently.

The teaching and energies you shared continue to have deep impact." ~ Bronwen Gates, Michigan USA
