Gre(v)en(ts): Permaculture in Park Slope

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:

  1. I wish this weren’t so far away. I’m intensely interested in permaculture and would love to learn more about it. Most of what I know comes from Starhawk’s teachings.

  2. Oh, I didn’t know about that at Paul Smith’s. I’ll have to look into that sometime… This year is a bit busy with grad school, but I would love to take formal classes!
    I’ve heard of the institute near Ithaca. I actually have a friend who is very involved in it. I wish I were closer! Ithaca is supposed to be a paradise for anyone influenced by environmentalism, vegetarianism, or Paganism.
