**Postponed until further notice**
We are sad to report that, due to unforeseen circumstances, our facilitator will not be able to come to Colorado at this time to lead this workshop. We are working to reschedule it for later this year if possible, and we will share more information here and at www.woodbinecenter.org/ised16 as it becomes available. Our other workshops will continue as planned.
Join Woodbine for the second in our four-part Praxis of Social and Ecological Design Series - a weekend-long workshop on Social Permaculture!
This residential workshop will be hosted at Woodbine's beautiful land-based center in the mountains outside of Sedalia, CO. It will be a rare opportunity to immerse yourself in a weekend of learning and discussion on the social applications and connections of permaculture, so don't miss it!
This weekend workshop will be facilitated by permaculture expert Pandora Thomas, co-founder of Earthseed Consulting. Pandora is a profound teacher, writer, designer, and speaker, and this will be her third year involved with teaching at Woodbine. You can learn more about Pandora and her work at www.pandorathomas.com.
This weekend on Social Permaculture will focus on nurturing effective and creative relationships and collaboration while exploring the question of how permaculture principles can bring people together to co-create and empower one another to transform unjust social patterns into healing, nurturing and inspirational collaborative experiences. Led by Pandora and using approaches inspired by permaculture principles, this two-day interactive course will explore how to build cross-cultural collaboration, structure our groups for maximum group health, and build community and trust. We’ll share tools for decision making and constructive critique while we explore several permaculture principles, including: designing beneficial relationships, valuing and working with diversity and edge, and stacking functions, all while we design the physical to support the social
The workshop will balance the process work with time outdoors in nature, including hands-on work on the land, as well as walks and wilderness awareness. Insights from our own cultural experiences, permaculture, and indigenous wisdom will help us learn to be more effective and joyful as we work together to regenerate our world. It promises to be an amazing weekend!
The Social Permaculture weekend workshop has no prerequisites other than a strong desire to learn how to design for healthier and stronger ecosystems and communities. Registration is $350 and includes all course materials, world-class instruction, five meals and three nights of lodging at Woodbine's beautiful land-based center in the mountains.
