Forest Society to Host Introduction to Permaculture Design Workshops
Join the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests and Concord Energy and Environment Committee for a two-part “Introduction to Permaculture Design” workshop. The workshops will take place on Wednesday evenings, November 2 and 16, from 6 to 8:30 pm at the Forest Society’s Conservation Center, 54 Portsmouth Street, Concord, NH.
Permaculture is a method of developing life skills for sustainable living and beyond. It aims to regenerate healthy, productive landscapes and communities by applying ecological principles to the design of human habits.
The first session of this two-part workshop will overview permaculture design, while the second session will describe how participants can use the design process on their own properties or projects.

Taylor & Associates and also an adjunct faculty member at Plymouth State University, where he teaches courses on environmental planning, community planning, permaculture, and sustainability.
The cost of the workshops is $50, and pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, call Steve at (603) 381-1798 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
