PRACTICAL PERMACULTURE  with Brian Kerkvliet
10am to 4pm.
**Co-sponsored by Transition Whatcom**


A hands-on approach to implementing some Permaculture principles: zones, sectors, ethics, mapping, compost and guilds. This fun information-stacked day will provide practical ways to design your environment into an integrated system of abundance and productivity. Using design strategies, we will explore ways of stacking elements within a system to be more productive and self regulating. The morning will be class presentations and discussion; the afternoon will be a site tour and hands-on session working with guilds, sheet mulch and integrated composting and animal systems.
