Though this is outside Whatcom county, I think it could be a great opportunity for us to learn how to design our own communities, and live more sustainably.
Here's the lowdown:
Some folks have just purchased some land on the southern side of the Olympics, on the Satsop river, with the intention to create a community called Clearwater Sanctuary there. Huckleberry Leonard, the lead teacher for the course, has studied and taught with David Holmgren, Toby Hemmenway, Geoff Lawton, and others, and has been teaching permaculture since '98. His specialties include natural building and design, edible landscaping (30 years experience prior to permaculture) and all things botanical of the Pacific NW. More on him here.
This course is unique because it includes co-designing how the community will be created. Starting in January, the design that's created in this course will begin to be implemented. How cool is that?! A permaculture course that's actually based on a piece of land, and design that will actually be put into practice.
