Permaculture Practicum with Darren Doherty

Aug 10, 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 10: Reforestation for Profit

Planting trees is often looked at as a charitable act for future generations.  For many land owners and farmers it is very difficult to budget tree establishment and care with just a vague promise of a healthier ecosystem.  Darren will advise on specific strategies to plant trees that are also short and long-term enterprises designed to serve ecological function while bringing in capital through lumber, fence posts, animal feed, and other yields.
