Imagine Permaculture: Resilient Whole System Design Strategies
As a co-steward of Inspiration Farm, Brian has a wide breadth of practical knowledge on how to partner with natural systems to bring forth stability and abundance. Having completed three full Permaculture design certificate courses, he now does consultation work for others who want to fast track the establishment of resilient system on their land. Brian teaches workshops at Inspiration Farm pertaining to the many aspects for designing and living within a resilient system that provides for most of the food fiber and medicine needed to live a happy healthy life while restoring the ecosystem. His enthusiasm to share this with a wider audience shows in all that he does.

Abstract of talk. Imagine Permaculture,
I will share with you an overview of what Permaculture is and some of the strategies used to implement it on your land. Ethics, concepts, strategies and themes of design will form a basis of understanding of how to partner with natural systems to create a resilient abundant regenerative system. Questions and answer period will follow the presentation.
To further develop the connection between the farm and the community we offer tours. Tours are a great way to learn and visit the farm and pick up some permaculture food at the same time. See first hand what it takes to turn a landscape into a productive, vibrant, resilient, regenerative system. We will show you what makes Permaculture and Biodynamic farming systems thrive in food abundance at the same time as we regenerate the land, create habitat, clean and store water and build soil! Tours generally cover land, water, nutrient, biomass and animal management systems. Nursery Plant sales and more. This may be altered according to people on the tours interest and questions.
