Dear esteemed Permaculture Allies-
Please join us at TLC Farm in Portland, OR for 2 special evening events next week,
which are extended to the public on behalf of the Permaculture Design Course
happening through July 7th.
Please RSVP to permaculture at tryonfarm.org for both events so that we may get
a sense of transportation needs and whether or not we need to run a shuttle.
Both events are free to attend, and we will also encourage generosity through participation
in the gift economy (AKA "passing the hat").

Revolution, with a preface by Wendell Berry and a new introduction by Frances
In addition to editing The One-Straw Revolution, Larry also co-edited the Tilth

activist self with her stories of effective activism and the works of
