Listening Tree Permaculture Design Charette
July 15 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm$125
Come learn by doing! This full-day workshop will help design Listening Tree Cooperative’s permaculture homestead. The workshop is a great opportunity for anyone with a permaculture design certificate looking for a hands-on learning experience, or for anyone interested in participating in the process of transforming a former Christmas tree farm into a food ecosystem and community!
Learn design and planning through the lens of permaculture and sustainability in Chepachet, Rhode Island. Deepen your skills in permaculture, community, and land planning. In this one-day, whole systems design intensive, we will develop designs for a small land-based community. The community has a focus on self-reliance, sustainability, and community resilience. The designs that we generate together in an interactive process will help clarify directions forward in housing, paths and roads, gardens, plantings, and land management. Connections with community structure, decision-making, and livelihoods will be explored.
Workshop Facilitator: Jono Neiger, Principal, Regenerative Design Group
