Dana Driscoll (IUP English professor and certified permaculture designer) and other local residents are creating a “Permaculture Guild” and invite all to join! A permaculture guild is a group of people who come together to learn from each other, share, and grow towards more resilient and sustainable living. The group will have monthly potlucks and skill shares, where members of our community will teach us something connected to permaculture.
Permaculture is a philosophy and practice that integrates landscape and people to provide food, energy, and shelter in a sustainable way. It offers a system of ethics (people care, earth care, and fair share) and a large assortment of design principles that allow people to help transform their lives and their interaction with the environment.If you have questions, please feel free to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or come to the first meeting.
