Katrina Blair at Wild Plant Permaculture Course

Location: 848 East 3rd Ave, Durango, CO, 81301 | Authors: Katrina Blair

The Wild Plant Permaculture and Practices of Sacred Ecology Course is a 8 day intensive with hands-on instruction focusing on an integration of wild edible and medicinal plants and holistic health as part of the daily practices. These practices assist in the alignment of harmony between our internal landscape and our external environment. This course highlights cultural transformation through the power of community. We will begin with reviewing the permaculture basics, and then dive in to learning about how wild plants embody permaculture and cooperate to enhance the environment for the benefit of all. We will experience hands-on projects and deepen our understanding of permaculture design through explorations of sacred ecological practices and social permaculture. We will look to the wild wisdom for inspiration and support while we re-design own rhythmic patterns and community engagement. Realizing the power of awareness, gratitude, and intention, as well as the power of cooperative community, we will find ways we can each participate more powerfully in a regenerative transformation of the world. Suggested Donation $1111 (includes all lodging, food and instruction)
