Cancelled: Virtual Permaculture Tour: Bullock’s Permaculture Homestead

December 14, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Update: Due to low registration numbers, we’ll unfortunately have to cancel this presentation. However, Dave’s still very excited to be here for his workshop on Thursday morning, and we still have some spots open there! Be sure to register to save yours!

During this presentation Dave Boehnlein will introduce the audience to the Bullock’s Permaculture Homestead (http://permacultureportal.com) on Orcas Island, WA. Originally featured in Bill Mollison’s “Global Gardener,” the Bullock family have continued to develop their site and now run one of the longest standing permaculture projects in the world.

This presentation will provide a thematic walkthrough of the homestead showcasing water, food, landscape, waste management, energy systems, animals, and invisible structures. Together all of these systems show a wonderful example of what can be achieved with a small budget and a lot of dedication.

During the presentation we will weave in specific take-home messages and lessons learned as the project has developed. Anyone interested in setting up a temperate climate permaculture homestead can learn a ton from the Bullock’s Permaculture Homestead!

Dave will have copies of his book, Practical Permaculture for Home Landscapes, Your Community and the Whole Earth, available for purchase.

Fee: Free (donations appreciated), we just ask that you please pre-register so we have a good count of who will be joining us. Thanks!
