Event Description

"lets not embrace sustainability because we fear the future 
lets embrace sustainability because we love the things we love about the present"

- Larry Santoyo

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 an unique and creative introduction to the permaculture paradigm. 

After nine 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 September 30 from 11 am - 5:30 pm, aligning with the bus linked to the 9:40 am ferry from Horseshoe Bay and the 7:30 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.
