My friend Paul Wheaton (the bad boy of permaculture) let me know about the upcoming permaculture design course he’s helping lead near Missoula this May.
From the announcement page:
“A well run PDC can be a life changing event. For many people it can be the most intense learning experience of their lives and also great fun to boot.
You will be surrounded by like minded people and together you will not only learn the framework to survive in a rapidly changing world but to thrive . You will also develop the skills to heal damaged landscapes while providing for your own needs.
In this course you are designing from the get go. Every new piece of information every new concept is delivered in sequence so that it is immediately relevant and applicable. Your design unfolds in step with the days subjects . This helps the learning to really take root in your mind.
Learn how make really good effective decisions. We incorporate a lot of Allan Savory’s Holistic management decision making process. We can’t emphasize how important this is if you want to make effective long lasting change in your life.”
More on the Permaculture Design Course
Don’t you want to hang out with fun people like these folks?
That’s the class of 2016. My kind of people.
There are some excellent instructors teaching at this event, including Tim Barker, Erica and Ernie Wisner, Helen Atthowe, Jacqueline Freeman and Thomas J. Elpel (of Botany in a Day fame).
Paul doesn’t mess around! (Well, he does mess around, but he’s pretty danged serious about permaculture.)
If you’ve seen his epic earthworks, you know what I mean. This event will be impressive. There’s a lot of brain mass there.
If you are ready to drink from the firehose, check our Paul’s permaculture design course.
And you can see more and ask questions on the Permies.com thread as well.
If I wasn’t 3,000+ miles away… I would be all over this.
