Design your permaculture dream farm! Join us for our Applied On-Farm Permaculture pre-conference workshop at the 2015 EcoFarm Conference (lunch is included). This one-day workshop will introduce you to a step-by-step process for creating a regenerative farm. Whether you have a farm today or see one in your future, this workshop will give you a simple method you can use again and again to design your property and others.
OAEC staff – with support from Ali Robinson (FarmLink) and other experts in rangeland management, rare edible perennials, water management, and financial resources – will guide you in applying Permaculture Design principles to a local farm case study, as well as your specific property. We invite participants with farm systems, from gardens to broad-scale properties, to submit a property map and design goal outcomes upon registration. Attendees without land will collaboratively support the design process of other participants.
You will learn:
- Site assessment
- Project visioning
- Renewable farm energy
- Water harvesting and infiltration
- Business planning and financing options
- Design methods that compose with the natural and human systems on your farm
