Learn and implement permaculture

Community Sufficiency vs Self Sufficiency Series

Golgonooza Letter Foundry is seeking students who wish to implement the activities of permaculture gardening. In this time of Covid when the press is unable to accommodate students inside the press, we invite students who would like to spend time here to help maintain and create aspects of a permaculture garden outside and around the press. We will discuss and study principles of Permaculture and begin to implement those principles on this parcel of land with its site particularities with an eye toward the eventual combination of creating a place of learning craft and permaculture under one roof.

Field Days: October 2020

Having always believed in the concept of the Press being one with a full outer and inner life, I would like to offer a one to two week period of experimentation within the ideas of creating and maintaining a functional, permaculture space located around the press. The creative process remains of primary importance for us as human beings, and it includes our environment and how we live, as well as our use of resources and footprint, in addition to our own personal creativity in either the arts, craft or music etc.

Rolling Internship between October 12-23 2020

We will discuss permaculture ideas, have a working bee, and if time permits do some music improv…all outdoors.  A collaborative, stone mandala spiral to end the session will be created, if there is interest.

COST: an exchange of time and work for interested students pending an interview by phone. Helper bees of 6 hours or more will qualify for an equal exchange for future workshop hours…see Type & Sound, Type & Writing, Type & ART below.

Please email your interest, with “October field-work day” in the subject bar.  If calling, please let ring more than usual, as it is a landline. Contact info is below.

Social distancing will be maintained, and all time will be spent out of doors, weather permitting. Bring snacks, food and drink for yourself, as we cannot easily have a potluck at this time. Bring a mug, as we will brew a big pot of tea from herbs that are harvested off this land: nettles, lemon balm, mints etc…
