09.20.2010 Permaculture Design Course
Former Club President, Brett, forwarded an email about a permaculture design class at The Los Angeles Arboretum & Botanic Garden.
The course dates are 8 Saturdays, Oct 2 - Nov 20, and & 1 Sunday, Nov 21, The last day will probably be held at the Los Angeles Ecovillage. It’s going to be extremely fun, and more scientifically rigorous than most PDCs are, because the organizers include a botanist (Caitlin Bergman), an atmospheric scientist (Kirstie Stramler), and a student of fluvial geomorphology (Owen Hablutzel).
