Permaculture Practicum with Darren Doherty

Aug 9, 2014 9:00am-6:00pm (ended)

Darren Doherty is internationally recognized as a leader and pioneer in permaculture and regenerative agriculture! The format of this three-day course combines Darren's teaching on each specific topic, with a live walk-through of how to run an effective consultation with real clients.

August 9: Drought-Proofing Land and Farms in California

Darren will use the 350 acres of the MA Center land to show how to determine the most economically viable drought-proofing 'next-steps' that the center can be taken.  Often permaculture designers fixate on the big pond or the installations of swales when the best immediate choices for water catchment can be something less dramatic and more effective.  We will explore how to choose and present both big picture and immediate strategies to clients to drought-proof their land.
