Description: Come join us for a tour of our community!  Allow Aniko, one 
of our members, to walk you around the land, including our organic 
gardens, alternative building methods, off grid solar system, animals 
and orchards.

We are a committed group of people working together closely in 
community, on our 24 acre organic permaculture farm. We integrate the 
social aspects of sustainability into daily life: how to live together 
with honesty, love and peace, and share power and leadership.  We do not 
have one central leader, but instead share the cost of the land and the 
leadership equally.This is a great time to tour the land and ask 
questions about community.

*Let us know if you are coming.*  Thanks!

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 

*Tracy Matfin* is an educator turned farmer, mother and permaculture 
instructor.  She is a founding member of La'akea Community where she has 
been living and experimenting with social permaculture & sustainability 
for over ten years. Tracy grew up in the S.F. bay area, CA.  She studied 
enviromental science at U.C. Berkeley. She enjoys sharing her 
experiences, sitting with trees, communing with the "weeds" she is 
removing from the garden and laughing with her daughter, Aia'ala, 
friends and family.

La'akea Community, founded in 2005, has been going strong for ten years. 
Located just outside of Pahoa, the community consists of twelve adults 
and two kids.  The land is co-owned by all the members through an LLC 
and decisions are made by consensus.  The community shares their living 
experiment through tours and internship programs.

Come join us for a tour with flare and focus!  A follow up to the 
previous evening's presentation on permaculture, this tour will help you 
understand the principles by looking at their application here at 
La'akea Community.  By looking at examples with ample time for questions 
and discussion this opportunity is sure to increase your understanding 
of how to apply permaculture to your own systems.


*Wish List*

We are looking to better share our lives with others through photographs 
posted on Facebook, on our website and in other venues. At the moment, 
however, we don't have a working camera. Do you or someone you know have 
a working high-quality digital camera (our dream would be a D-SLR) that 
could be donated to La'akea Community? Thank you so much for considering 
our request.
