Center for Bioregional Living had a very productive and bountiful 2011! We started our Apprenticeship program for Permaculture design certification graduates, built several new buildings in our educational campus, constructed 9 new ponds on the property, taught our third year of advanced permaculture classes and hosted a large number of visitors and volunteers. We also added Vaud our new pup as, Junie calls him to the farm and family and 10 laying hens, Jersey giants and buff brahma, heritage heavy breeds great foragers grazing our backyard for us rotationally and laying plenty of eggs.
Andrew Faust, renowned Permaculture Scholar, has been captivating audiences with his message of how we can use permaculture to redesign the current, vulnerable economic landscape to reflect the most resilient systems functioning in nature. With over 20 years of teaching experience, he has, to date, successfully graduated over 400 students from his Permaculture Design Certification (PDC) course that is helping spawn a new wave of green businesses and organizations. The Permaculture movement is growing in the greater NYC area and has also found a home within the Occupy Wall Street community.
A lecture by permaculture instructor, Andrew Faust, on using permacultural design principles to make incremental upgrades to the urban landscape to help move the city in the direction of self-sufficiency and create an environment in which people can live and thrive. He suggests that broad, abstruse issues like global weirding and peak oil distract us from the very real, immediate, and achievable actions we can take to improve our situation. This lecture was presented on Friday, 29 September 2012 at The Commons Brooklyn in NYC.
