Transition Whatcom

Attention Certified Permaculturists: You are
invited to bring your business cards, handouts, and fliers to Transition
Whatcom's Great Unleashing on April 10th where there will be a special
table reserved for Permaculture and Permaculturists.

Feel free to hang out at the table, staff the table, or just leave your Permie related material.  We don't know how many of you will bring material, so please
don't try to dominate the table, but rather remember Holmgren's
principles: Apply self-regulation; produce no waste, integrate rather
than segregate; use small and slow solutions; use edges and value the
marginal. We hope you will, as a result, obtain a yield!

Doors will open at 8:00am for set up.

Thanks so much for this official invitation for Certified Permaculturists to have a table space at the Unleashing event. It is short notice, with only a week left before the event and so much gardening to do!
I look forward to many of us bringing in our flyers to share.
If anyone is willing to be the space organizer of this table – let us know, or just show up and take action.

Great reminder David re Holmgren's principles - apply self-regulation; produce no waste, integrate rather
than segregate; use small & slow solutions; use edges and value the
marginal, obtain a yield & share the abundance!
Hi Dave, Both Don & I came & helped set up this Thurs for the unleasing event.

So far, the folks expected to have info at the permi tables are:
Brian, Bruce, Paul, Seth, Dyanna, Chris, myself, and most likely more will come and we'll fit them in.

I noticed that both BUGS & Forest Gardens have a table labeled, so they may be willing to share space to.

I'll try to bring about 4 books, and there is a plastic carton under the table with a few office supplies if needed.
I also have a white board in case anyone wants to talk & draw...just ask me about borrowing the correct markers.
