Permaculture Design Certification Course: Embracing the Shaker Lifestyle and Legacy through Permaculture Design
(All day)

Embracing the Shaker Lifestyle & Legacy through Permaculture Design

A Permaculture Design Certification Course rooted in history, meaningful dialogue, the connection to holistic rhythms and beautifully skilled design

This April, spring into a unique and deep learning experience through ecological design that will shift the way you move through your life. Perhaps you are curious about the study of permaculture. It could be that there is a home landscape project you would like to design and implement using less resources and less maintenance. Maybe you are looking for a new way to view the world’s complicated array of problems…as opportunities? Would you like to discover your ‘ecological self’ and live more harmoniously and in tune with nature and the natural world?

This course runs one weekend a month from April 2015 – August 2015 (dates below) at Canterbury Shaker Village.  Dates for Training:

Presenters: Lauren Chase-Rowell, Stacey Doll and Mary Tebo Davis

As we plan and design a more sustainable and holistic world for ourselves and future generations, the Shakers have much to teach us about:

  • How much is enough
  • Simplicity
  • Multi-functionality in all we do
  • Finding contentment in who we are, what we have and what we do
  • Making a lot with a little
  • Resiliency

Join Lauren Chase-Rowell, Stacey Doll and Mary Tebo Davis on a journey of self exploration, professional level design work, deep connection and understanding of natural cycles and rhythms, and the ability to make your own life more meaningful and resilient simultaneously turning global unknowns into positive actions.

About Lauren Chase-Rowell, Stacey Doll and Mary Tebo Davis

Your instructors for this program are Lauren Chase-Rowell, Stacey Doll and Mary Tebo Davis – and you are in good hands with an enthusiastic teaching team!! Combined, they have over:

  • 40 years experience in contemplative and holistic practices
  • 50 years experience in design work
  • 60 years experience in teaching and homesteading

Lauren, Stacey and Mary all have their Permaculture Design Certifications, were on the teaching and design teams for Advanced Permaculture Diplomas in Franklin, Littleton, and Manchester, and they all have the Permaculture Teacher Training Certifications. Stacey brings over fifteen years of land use and sustainability planning to the team’s experience.

Mary brings over twenty years of volunteer coordination of Natural Resources Stewards and community leaders to improve ecosystems in NH communities. Lauren and Mary together have co-authored books in their field while Stacey, an aspiring author, has recently begun a daily blog to inspire people to embrace a daily practice of gratitude, love and communion with nature. Their approach to teaching permaculture is unique in that they bring authenticity, earth-wisdom, and deep connection between nature and our daily lives, while building on the solid foundation of science, horticulture, and design found in regional permaculture design certificate courses.

As we engage in this opportunity as a learning community, this class becomes more than a permaculture design certification course. It is an experience that can change your perspective, give you hope, and empower you from decision making to taking simple actions in your life that bring satisfaction and contentment. We look forward to sharing this experience with you.

Beautiful! Wild! Native! - Creating Wildflower Meadows to Bring our Native Pollinators Home
(07:00 PM - 08:30 PM)

Join us as we learn how to create perennial wildflower meadows and bee gardens. NH is home to several hundred species of native bees. These bees have a big job - they're responsible for pollination and reproduction of thousands of plant species in our fields, forests, wetlands, gardens, and farms. Amy Papineau, UNH Cooperative Extension Field Specialist, will discuss the roles and importance of native bees in NH's natural ecosystems and agriculture and will discuss what you can do to support native bees on your property by protecting, creating, and enhancing forage and nesting habitat and the steps in creating successful wildflower meadows.

Amy Papineau is a Field Specialist in Food & Agriculture with UNH Cooperative Extension, Merrimack County and is Co-Director of the Northern New England Pollinator Habitat Working Group. Amy works with the county’s agricultural and horticultural industries, providing research-based education and information to help farmers, growers, and others solve problems, make informed decisions, and strengthen businesses while conserving natural resources. Amy is a graduate of the University of New Hampshire, with degrees in Environmental Horticulture and Plant Biology.

This excellent presentation being hosted by the Canterbury Shaker Village Permaculture Design Course, we hope to see you there! Thanks for your RSVP to mary.tebo@unh.edu.
