Social Permaculture Programs at Sticks & Stones

Apr 02, 2016 02:34AM

Now you can explore social permaculture in sustainable living at Sticks and Stones Farm in Newtown. AZOTH Project is running their comprehensive social permaculture syllabus in 2016 with a one-day Tool Kit workshop on May 15, a two-day weekend retreat in June, and a four-month immersive series that begins in July.

The one day May workshop will cover the basics of social permaculture: essential concepts and principles, strategies and practices, internal landscape assessment support, and emotional landscape management techniques. This social permaculture curriculum is designed to provide participants with a greater understanding of the interferences with collaboration, intimacy and vulnerability. Understanding these processes improves the likelihood of project success.

This one day event is material-intensive and geared toward introducing concepts and practices. The intention is to inspire participants to continue their own research and exploration into the world of social permaculture, independently or in groups. The rhythm of the workshop mimics natural expansion and contraction models; attendees will gather together to cover topics, expand into an activity or practice, then re-collect for more information, expanding again into another activity. Practices and lectures build upon one another successively.

The May workshop takes place from 9:30am to 10pm with breaks for lunch, a potluck dinner, and a concluding fire ceremony in the evening. Participants should bring a lunch and a potluck dinner contribution, a notebook and writing utensils, warm layers and a water bottle.
