gather and grow

Homegrown, hand-spun living in the city

In case you’re wondering what I’ve been up to lately…

I’m proud to announce that I’m again on the teaching and organizing team for the South Carolina Permaculture Design Course, taking place here in Columbia, SC, in Spring 2016.

Check out the 2016 course website!

Last spring’s pioneering course was a success — and for me as a facilitator, one of the most positive and empowering experiences I’ve ever had. I wrote about it here and here. In May, we sent out into the world 21 certified permaculture designers who have gone on to apply their learning to their incredibly diverse life situations and home sites.

We’re bringing the course back in Spring 2016, again at the fantastic City Roots urban farm — with the best of what worked last year and new improvements such as guest teachers who are experts in the area. October’s disastrous floods alone showed that our region — and the world — needs the tools to build resilience, regenerative ecosystems and human systems, and vibrant communities. That’s what permaculture has to offer. IMG_1088
