Claudia Joseph, my amazing Permaculture teacher from back in the City, is starting a Permaculture Guild in Brooklyn. The first meeting is Saturday, February 5th, starting at noon, at the Old Stone House in Park Slope. I highly recommend this to everyone…Permaculture is not an elitist/hippie/vegan way of movement – it is an incredibly insightful way of life that is relevant to anyone regardless of their situation/beliefs/time/diet/etc….in other words: YOU!
Here’s the email Claudia sent to me:
