Event Description

"Sitting at our back doorsteps, all we need to live a good life lies about us. Sun, wind, people, buildings, stones, sea, birds and plants surround us. Cooperation with all these things brings harmony, opposition to them brings disaster and chaos."
- Bill Mollison

Come celebrate the summer solstice with a
permaculture tour of a garden, microfarm, beach, new ecovillage and rainforest a short ferry ride from Vancouver
as we do the first module in a permaculture design course

this will be a great reminder and primer for those who have done this before
and be presented in a creative way like never experienced before

it will also be a great introduction or activation for those newer to the permaculture movement

Ground Level
With Delvin Solkinson and Kym Chi

Join a group of conscious learners in a free introduction to permaculture day in the Heart Gardens, Gumboot Gardens, Elphinstone Rainforest and Mandala Beach of Roberts Creek. Pilgrimage in carpools to the Sunshine Coast, a short ferry ride from Vancouver, to experience a unique and creative introduction to the permaculture paradigm. 

After fifteen successful runs of this free intro day, its been a great experience for people who are new to permaculture as well as those who are deeply experienced. 

together we will :

talk about the ethos, principles, 
toolkit and metastructure of permaculture,
tour the gardens,
meet some of the food-medicine plants of the Coastal First Peoples, 
share a potluck meal, 
watch some permaculture movies, 
walk in the rainforest, 
meet by the ocean,
and have an inspiring day learning and growing with nature. 

The day will run on May 6
from 11 am - 5:30 pm, aligning with the bus linked to the 9:20 am ferry from Horseshoe Bay and the 6:30 ferry returning to Vancouver. I will help to co-ordinate a carpool as well.

There is a limited space so please RSVP to confirm your attendance to delvin@cosm.org. 
Since its a free course, i am trusting that if you ask for a space you will make a commitment to following through and attending the full day :) The spring weather varies, please come dressed to be outside for short periods regardless of weather (dress warm and with rainproof gear or umbrella if you are worried about rain).

Looking forward to a day of wonderful people connecting and sharing about how to be more conscious planetary citizens.
