*Northeast Ohio, Winter 2010*

*“Join us as we explore the power of ecological design to create resilience
and beauty in our communities."*

*Location*: Cleveland and Youngstown, Ohio.

*Dates*: Feb. 6-7, Feb. 20-21, March 6-7, March 13-14, March 27-28, and
April 10-11

Over six weekends, Saturday morning through Sunday afternoon, we will
present the internationally recognized curriculum in permaculture
design.   Permaculture
has the potential to have a huge impact in the formerly industrial cities of
the Midwest, where shrinking populations and abundant urban land are leading
the development of regenerative urban food systems.  This course will place
a focus on exploring options for developing healthy local food systems,
community resilience, and local networks of support.  Participants will gain
experience with permaculture by developing designs for emerging urban garden
projects, installing a demonstration garden and visiting established
systems.  This course will also include a weekend trip to explore the
renowned local food system of Athens county, Ohio.

*Course Sponsors*:  Green Triangle Project, Grow Youngstown, Ohio Ecological
Food and Farm Association, and Habitats Ecological Design.

*Instructors*:  Mark Cohen, Josh Beniston, and Peter Bane with local guests.
