This workshop will introduce you to the ethics of permaculture, zones and sectors while demonstrating the effectiveness of using permaculture principles to develop and nurture relationships between people. The presentation will share the experiences of a well-established intentional community and get you up out of your seat and started on making your own new experiences.
It will lighten your spirit and inspire you to use permaculture in your social sphere as well as in your garden! Laughter possible, smiles guaranteed.
