Wondering how you can participate in land-based solutions to social, economic, and environmental crisis, without owning property? Confused about where to start? *East Bay Cohousing* is delighted to host a workshop that we think is relevant also to homeowners, cohousers, condo-owners, co-op members, and group house residents, with a *$20 discount* for paid supporting EBCOHO members. Register by Monday if you want this to happen [I met the instructor at the Village Building Convergence in Portland and he needs a full class to justify the trip to the Bay Area]. http://www.ebcoho.org/calendar/10907771/ For all of those folks who have thought or said "*I want to practice Permaculture, but I don’t have any land*," *Permaculture for Renters<http://www.permacultureforrenters.com/> * will provide a packed toolbox of strategies and methods that can be used anywhere: on *balconies*, while *traveling*, in *tiny sideyards*, *indoors*, on *rooftops*, and more! Over the *two day workshop*, participants will come together with diverse members of their community to engage their *heads, hearts, and hands* in learning a wide range of useful concepts and techniques that they can integrate into their lives no matter who they are or where they live. This is a great opportunity for anyone searching for a way to be more effective in creating a more ecologically and social just world. *Students, couchsurfers, renters, travelers*, and even *landlords* will come away from the weekend feeling inspired and empowered. Some of the topics covered in the course include: - The Ethics and Principles of Permaculture, and how non-Land-Holders can Live By Them - How to Create Edible Plant Micro-Nurseries to Pay Your Rent and Food-Forest Your Town - Food Gardening in Small Spaces - Mobile Container Gardens - Plant Propagation - Small-Space Edible Mushroom Cultivation - Guerrilla Gardening - Land Access for Renters: Creating Interdependent Communities of Land-Owners and Non-Land-Owners Additionally, you will leave with: - Nursery stock and mushroom spawn to propagate. - A web-based ‘virtual binder’ of readings and resources for further learning. ------------------------------ *About the Instructor* *Leonard Barrett* is a landscape designer, contractor, educator, and renter based in *Portland, OR.* Through his firm, *Barrett Ecological Services*, he has collaborated on land planning projects with some of the region's best and brightest in sustainable design, including *Mark Lakeman* (* Communitecture*) and BEAM Development. Most recently he has been a visiting professor in the Environmental Studies department at Pacific University, teaching a 3-credit course entitled “*Landscape Master Planning: A Permaculture Perspective*.” ------------------------------ The workshop fee is $150-200 sliding scale for the whole 2-day workshop, with single-day options available. Current paid East Bay Cohousing supporting members can deduct $20. Learn more and RSVP via East Bay Cohousing: http://www.ebcoho.org/calendar/10907771/
