The Secret Solution to Global Warming (Hint: It involves YOU)
7pm Wednesdays. Dates: September 4, 11, 18, 25 and October 23
Climate issues got you down? This course is an antidote for shock and despair. Global warming CAN be reversed: the data is in, the solutions are awesome, and implementing them might even be inspiring and fun! Join instructors Carol Cole-Lewis and Denise Rushing in uncovering the root causes of this crisis (and it’s not what you think!) and then choosing what you can do about it. This is a good follow-on to the popular Introduction to Drawdown workshop.
Workshop: Introduction to Permaculture (Ecological Design).
Date: September 14 - 10 am to 2 pm
Instructors: Lindsay Dailey and Denise Rushing
Permaculture, a design process based on observation and systems thinking, offers us a framework to create ecologically sustainable and socially just human settlements, and guides our response towards the health of the whole. In this course, explore a set of design principles and ethics to move our thinking and actions towards life-enhancing approaches to human and natural systems.
New Paradigm College will also be offering an 80 hour Ecological Design Certification Program beginning October 26 for those interested in obtaining their Permaculture Design Certificate.
