MAPC 2017 is nearly upon us, so to give you an idea of what you might hear at this year’s event, while also digging into some permaculture questions with diverse voices. Here is part of the question and answer session recorded at the inaugural event on June 17, 2016.
During this discussion the group talks about:
1. Swales and the impact on roots.
2. How to continue your permaculture education.
3. The role and nature of the Permaculture Design Course (PDC) as a course for practitioners.
And you’ll hear from:
Claudia Joseph of New York Permaculture Exchange
Nicole Luttrell of Wind Song Farm
C. Dale Hendrick of Green Light Plants
Ben Weiss of Susquehanna Permaculture
Todd McCree from Great Escape Farms
Diane Blust from Chicory Hill Farm
Karen Stupski of Goddard College
Zach Elfers of Nomad Seed Project
After listening to this conversation, what your thoughts on these questions? Do you agree with Dale that a swale provides one opportunity uphill, and another opportunity downhill? How long should someone practice permaculture before teaching or calling themselves a designer?
