Designing low-impact human spaces that harmonize with ecological systems and grow food, Permaculture allows us to maintain what we create in beneficial relationships for all. Our focus is on both applying permaculture principles in specific landscapes and the bigger ideas of applying it to our whole urban infrastructure, including “invisible structures”—from codes to ownership patterns—and the role we can play in affecting them for more connected and resilient communities.

Our speakers include:

Jacqueline Cramer, Earth Care by Design Collaborators (www.earthcare.design),consultant, teacher, designer and installer of permaculture landscapes. Exploring ethics, principles, mindset, and design techniques, with examples of her work and other. Invisible structures also addressed.
Andy Gordon-Maclean, M.Sc. Applied Ecology and Conservation, 15 years in permaculture, community conservation, international development. Presenting urban case studies from South Africa, Great Britain, Italy and Ecuador, a look at global challenges and permaculture’s role.

Bring your questions and contribute your knowledge as well.  Facilitator: Tom Balderston
