Study group for Earth User's Guide to Permaculture

Just a reminder about the study group for Earth User's Guide to Permaculture starting this Wednesday and that you can pick up a copy of the book there.


Start: Nov 5 2008 - 7:00pm End: Nov 5 2008 - 9:00pm

Portland Peak Oil is proud to announce a study group for the "Earth User's Guide to Permaculture" by Rosemary Morrow. The Earth User's Guide for Permaculture breaks down the complex material in simple layered concepts, building each successive chapter on the previous, and gives the reader practical "labs" to help apply the concepts--even if you are just dreaming about property and don't own any yet. There are exercises associated with each part so you can work in implementing a few designs into your life, house, nearby dirt and scattered areas around town.

It is best if you read the first few chapters in advance and we will be asking Laughing Horse Books to order books in advance and make them available at the back table on upcoming Wednesday evenings. .

The book is divided in to 6 main sections: Part 1: An observing and appraising eye Part 2: Ecological themes in permaculture Part 3: Applying permaculture Part 4: Adding resilience to design Part 5: Social permaculture

The first two parts talk extensively on the WHY of permaculture, and the next three sections talk about HOW in detail. Ticket Info: meeting is free, but the book will be $16
