Whatcom County is already a hotspot of good ideas and initiatives. This permaculture event will attempt to put them all into perspective. We will explore how trees, food production, transportation, energy, housing, ecosystem restoration, animal husbandry, economy etc are integrated into sustainable design at micro to macro levels.
Permaculture design emphasizes co-generation opportunities, closing loops, and turning wastes to resources - outputs of one part of the system becoming inputs for another part. We study interconnections and flows. Soils, communities & ecosystems get richer.
Michael has been involved in the permaculture movement since 1981 and is one of the Northwest’s leading permaculture teachers. Suitable for grass-roots activists, county planners, and concerned citizens.
