Permaculture Design Course

This is the last weekend of the annual Permaculture Design Course. It is a bittersweet time……a time for reflections.

This was my first year co-teaching the design course. As I listen to all the participants share their designs, I have to pause and ask myself “Do they have everything they need to create designs that are functional, sustainable and efficient”? Are they prepared to go our into our beautiful state and harness change?

It feels like parenting….. a little.

As a teacher, I give the best of myself in the hopes that folks will become inspired and hungry for more information to grow healthier food, feel the warm sense of “home” in their heart for the environment of Alaska and spur a desire to share their new found knowledge of design.

A weekend of reflections.
