Neighborhood Permaculture Design Course
Begins September 22, 2012
The Neighborhood Permaculture Design Course is Timely and Empowering.
Half of all Americans live in suburban neighborhoods. Transforming those
neighborhoods, a sort of "suburban alchemy, " can help mitigate virtually every one of
today's deepening social, economic, resource and environmental challenges. The NPDC
will be an invaluable experience for you to "repurpose" - your home, your neighborhood,
yourself - by learning how to identify and engage assets and opportunities, that have been
there all along, for creating a more local, green and uplifted culture and economy.
The Neighborhood PDC will take place in the River Road neighborhood of Eugene,
Oregon, which is becoming known for its unusual density and variety of home scale
permaculture projects. The course includes not only classic permaculture taught by
skilled instructors but will also draw heavily from the combined experience of nearly
a dozen nearby property transformation practitioners and their projects. Site tours and
companion presentations will introduce participants to a remarkable set of actions and
approaches - personal, on the ground and social, to transforming where they live.
The training will feature:
