“Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex,
the solutions remain embarrassingly simple”
– Bill Mollison, Originator of Permaculture
Visionary Permaculture Design : Four Seasons Workshop Program : CoSM Summer Class
Gardening and Food Forestry
Gather at the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors for a uniquely creative workshop on the power of permaculture in gardening. Together we will explore core concepts of permaculture while we tour the land and meet the plant community in this inspiring art sanctuary.
Exploring the map and design for these Temple Grounds, we will look at techniques and strategies for applying permaculture to the way you design and implement your gardens on any scale. Integrating companion planting and succession with the creation of garden guilds and polycultures, we will learn how to redesign our own gardens to save time, energy and money while creating more abundant production for people and the planet.
Attend all four seasonal permaculture workshops and the full moon intro workshop to get a CoSM Visionary Permaculture Design Four Seasons Workshop Program Certificate of Completion.
Delvin grew up in the Elphinstone Rainforest of British Columbia before bringing nature education into the local elementary school system and setting up a series of community gardens. His permaculture education spans three Diplomas and a Masters Degree with Bill Mollison, the originator of permaculture. His programs have been developed while taking 16 advanced courses and is the focus of his current Doctoral Degree in permaculture education. He volunteers at CoSM as the senior managing editor of CoSM Journal of Visionary Culture and to teach permaculture as a fundraiser for the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors.
Grace was raised on a small family farm nestled on the edge of the woods in the wilds of Washington state, where she developed a keen love of nature and an appreciation for its many uses in everyday life. A crafter by nature, she started developing her own skincare line and successfully selling it to individuals, local stores and at farmers markets fifteen years ago, eventually even garnering interest in her products from national chains. She has scaled back production of her products to allow her to focus on her love of jewelry making and her work at CoSM, but is working on a recipe book to eventually be able to share her years of research and recipes with a wider audience.
