Our new date for the Water is Life Workshop is Saturday, February 4. There is still time to register! Also check out our next couple workshops on Permaculture and Seed Starting posted below. The light is growing and it's a great time to plan for Spring.
Water is Life: a Workshop and Fundraiser for Water Protectors Legal Collective February 4th, Saturday 10am to 2pm
When we work on the land to make arid environments flourish, we plant the water first. This creates a fertile environment from which life can grow.
Living water flows within us. A good relationship with elemental water, and tapping into fluid patterns within our lives, helps our investments of energy flourish.
How do we create fertile environments within our lives to support the seeds we plant? The answer will be particular to each of us. In this workshop sacred water will guide us there.
The day will include:
self reflection exercise
observing design that recognizes the sacredness of water
Effective change can start in a small and gentle way with the help of Permaculture's guiding principles. By exploring strategies like Optimizing the Edge and Making the Least Change for the Greatest Effect, we can work towards self sufficiency and community resilience.
While many of us agree with the ethics of Permaculture (Care for the Earth, Care for People, and Fair Share of Surplus), deepening our commitment to them can be best accomplished as a collective journey that takes community support.
Ampersand's site demonstrates many examples of Permaculture design and our experience with building community can offer insight. However, the right next steps for you will arise from your personal lifestyle and inspiration.
Find more ways to demonstrate this care for the earth and for people in a way that speaks to your spirit and adds a level of fulfillment to your life.

Plant seeds early indoors! You can use a greenhouse, cold frame, or South facing window to get your garden sprouting despite snow on the ground outside. The factors to ensure germination and transplant success include timing, soil composition, and watering techniques. Learn how to stage indoor plantings so that your colder season veggies like spinach and lettuce and warm season ones like squash and tomatoes are ready for the garden when the climate is right. Try your hand at transplanting seedlings from flats into pots and develop your own planting calendar.
