Permaculture Design Charette
Some of us “cooperatives” have been living at Listening Tree for 2 years this June. We’ve dreamed, speculated, walked the land with “soft eyes,” started a lot of projects, planted a lot, but there’s so much more potential to cooperate with the ecosystem and heal the soil and biodiversity, as well as develop our community.
We’re thrilled Jono Neiger, author of The Permaculture Promise, will be coming to Listening Tree July 15 to lead an all-day permaculture design charette–an inclusive process of looking deeply into how to listen to and respond to the land, water, and life here, and plan our growth and integration.
More details here. Or go ahead and register for the $125 all-day event here.
