Session 3: Focus on Social Permaculture
Using the Permaculture design principles of Use and Value Renewal Resources and Services, Use and Value Diversity, and Creatively Use and Respond to Change, we will explore what it takes to create flourishing human working groups through various exercises and a panel discussion with our own Alexa Hauser, plus special guests, Kat Steele and Joanna Claasen.

Building on session 1′s introduction of both the Permaculture Design Principles and their application across our lives and the Edible Landscape Gardens in Memorial Park, we will have the pleasure of local Physical Therapist and Master Gardener Gail Durkin’s company as she educates us about body mechanics in the garden. Learning how to take care of our bodies while in the garden, or anywhere else for that matter, is a great example of the Permaculture Design Principle, Apply self-regulation and Accept Feedback and the Permaculture Ethic: People Care
Help design possibilities for the expanded Eastside Garden (formerly called the ELP)

WORK PARTY AGENDA
- Revisit and reconsider our mission and vision
- We will validate and/or modify our mission and vision in light of the additional space that we will integrate with the rest of the edible garden. Delia will lead this process.
- Explore the use of feng shui while observing and feeling the new space in relation to that area and the broader environment all around
- We will lay out the shape of the edges and movement through the space under the guidance of Alisa Rose.
- Explore the use of Permaculture while observing the new space in relation to that area and the broader environment all around
- We will work in small groups to design elements of the garden using collage, drawing, writing, what you will. Alexa will facilitate this process.
After Saturday, a small group of volunteers will take our ideas and put together plans for moving our project forward. (more…)
