part of our Social Permaculture Series with James Skeet
March 31, 11am to 4pm
We begin by identfying colonization, including the local capture of land and exploitation of resources, as well as the adoption of systems that value production, efficiency, and quantity above all else. It affects the way we operate in our day to day lives, with repetitious, meaningless jobs, urbanization, and medication. In order to decolonize our approaches in life, we explore the crucial connections between peoples, land, and cosmology.
In order to learn about Re-Indigenization, James will share with us land based archtypes and our place within existing indigenous cosmologies. Learn how to honor one another and the land to recreate the abundance that flows from reciprocity. Reclaim a community mind-set through an understanding of kinship. Learn how to enter into indigenous sacred space with love and respect and without presumption in order to avoid trespass on indigenous cultures.
James will help us understand our own cosmologies and envision our unique paths towards re-indigenization. At the end of the workshop we will celebrate our journey together with a ceremony to honor our relationships and our agreements with the land.

Regenerative Soil Ecology for Home and Community Gardens
This one day workshop on regenerative gardening takes a living systems approach to soil and will introduce people to simple techniques for building living, fertile, resilient soil through increasing soil biodiversity and biomass. Regenerative gardening yields foods and medicines with much higher nutrient content and better flavor. We will explore nutrient cycling through the lens of soil, plant, and fungal ecology.

creating biodiverse polyculture
Regenerative soil ecology sequesters carbon and preserves and increases biodiversity. The techniques discussed in this workshop will help mitigate global warming, climate change, and ocean acidification. All this can be addressed by making wise decisions in our home and community gardens.
