Permaculture: A Fast Growing Movement for Positive Change

An exciting opportunity to attend a workshop and hear an excellent
speaker!

Many people today are keenly aware of a need for change and care deeply
about the planet and their communities but feel powerless to do anything
to make a difference.  However, when informed about a diverse and
deepening scope of positive, practical & effective solutions people
become inspired and empowered change-makers in their communities.

Permaculture Regina is pleased to present  Rob Avis of Verge
Permaculture.  He will discuss the fundamentals of permaculture ethics,
principles and design methodology, and how it can be applied to:
- improve your home & backyard while saving resources and building a
healthy place for family, friends and community;
- build resilient communities patterned after ecological principles; and
- assemble landscapes that clean water, use less energy, provide healthy
organic food, save money and contribute to a healthy ecology.

Whether your interest is gardening, building homes, community work,
economic regeneration, education, health, planning, business or green
lifestyles, the application of permaculture design provides positive
solutions towards a sustainable future.
