The Winter Conference welcomes Mark Shepard as keynote speaker and all-day seminar leader, January 11, 2014, in Worcester, Mass. Shepard is the CEO of Forest Agriculture Enterprises and runs New Forest Farm, the Wisconsin 106-acre perennial agricultural forest considered by many to be one of the most ambitious sustainable agriculture projects in the United States.
 

Permaculture uses ecology as the basis for designing integrated systems of food production, housing, appropriate technology, and community resilience. We’ll cover definitions, history, ethics, and some principles & techniques. You will walk away with a framework for understanding the connections between social and ecological health and a method for designing solutions.
