Cost of the workshop is $40 for a full day from 9-4. There will be a power point presentation, slides, Q and A, and a tour of the community and it’s 9 acres of natural land. Payment and pre-registration are required by September 27th. Please contact Danny at 250-897-3804 for more information or to register.

The workshop will be held on October 2nd. Permaculture is an ecological design system for meeting essential human needs in sustainable ways – from yard-scale food production to neighborhood revitalization and the creation of resilient communities. This workshop will explore key permaculture design principles and strategies for permaculture work in your own yards, communities, and cities.

The instructor will be Ron Berezan from Powell River. Ron has an incredible wealth of experience and knowledge in organic gardening/edible landscapes/forest gardening and permaculture. Ron has had extensive training in the “Bio-Intensive” organic gardening method and in Permaculture Design. He is a Master Gardener and a member of the Society of Organic Urban Land Care Professionals (SOUL). He has been a frequent CBC gardening commentator and has been published in numerous gardening magazines. Ron operates The Urban Farmer, an organic gardening, edible landscaping and Permaculture design service (www.theurbanfarmer.ca ).”
