Permaculture for Pollinators, People & Planet

Permaculture is a design science that uses nature as a model for creating resilient human systems. Join this introductory class to learn how to apply permaculture design to support pollinators, people, and the planet—in suburbia and beyond. We will use the twelve principles of permaculture to dive into techniques like rainwater harvesting, building healthy soil, forest gardening, animal management, and more, all in the context of supporting our local ecology. Presenters: Amy Scanes-Wolfe is a teacher with Boulder Permaculture. After studying cultural anthropology at Middlebury College, Amy transitioned to organic farming for five years. She then served on the board of Ecovillage Charlottesville, worked at Harlequins Gardens Sustainable Nursery, worked and volunteered with Boulder County Parks and Open Space, and founded and ran an ecological landscaping company for two years. Currently, Amy is the Community Outreach and Research Coordinator for Drylands Agroecology Research and runs a permaculture homestead in Niwot. Rachae Scala is an up-cycling 3D artist, locavore chef, social permaculturalist, homesteader, and mountain athlete. Growing up in the high desert of Reno, NV, water sanctity, food security, and art as an empowerment modality were at the forefront of her community and family values. She cultivates her lifelong mission of fostering a deeper connection to nature and all of its creatures through food, expression, and true nourishment. Rachael sees permaculture as a highly creative and practical way of looking at the world. Drawing from a diverse collective of knowledge, it is a framework for humanity to coexist harmoniously and restore our role as stewards of nature.
