Permaculture for Social Design and Entrepreneurship

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join our panel of experts and practitioners from a variety of fields in looking at the permaculture principles that weave them together and strengthen their work. From farm design and product development, to grassroots solutions for food deserts, to using art to awaken people to larger issues or self-healing, to herbal medicine making and ethical harvesting—we’ll discuss the ecological worldviews that inform our panelists’ various projects. We’ll also explore entrepreneurship, right livelihood, and the ways in which creating cultural and social healing often looks like ecological restoration and connection. Those naturally go hand in hand, but are often not talked about as such in the broader community. Join Michelle Gabrieloff-Parish and panelists who have all studied permaculture design, and yet use it very differently: Beverly Grant, founder of Mo’ Betta Green, Molina Speaks, live scribe and youth educator, Oliver Weber, founder of Pachamama Farm, and Sheree Brown, herbalist and artist.
