The evening of May 2nd and all day on 3rd, 4th and 5th

Be part of a multi-day permaculture design workshop that will guide revitalization and redevelopment of the Tannery Marketplace in downtown Littleton. As part of the town’s overall plan to revive the River District in Littleton, the Tannery is embracing energy efficiency, renewable energy, water resource planning, community spaces, and overall innovative and sustainable practices. This workshop is ideal for citizens who would like to obtain permaculture design and planning knowledge and experience, as well as professional permaculture designers, planners, landscape or building designers, and educators. An advanced permaculture diploma is available to those with their Permaculture Design Certification (PDC).

In this unique workshop, participants will blend their interest and enthusiasm for permaculture and ecological design solutions with the plans to redevelop the historic Tannery mill located on the Ammonoosuc River. This redevelopment is just part of an overall plan, already underway, to redevelop and revitalize the River District in Littleton. This workshop supports those efforts and the owner’s plans to implement the ecological design conceptualize by the workshop participants.

After engaging in a detailed site analysis, participants will identify regenerative solutions to address present issues with storm water, energy consumption and generation, urban biodiversity and habitat loss. The lack of outdoor community gathering spaces will be addressed while developing innovative projects for capturing and storing energy, valuing natural resources, integrating uses, and stacking the many functions of this land.

Workshop includes:

  • One Evening (May 2nd) and three full days (3rd, 4th & 5th) designing and planning at the Tannery Lunch and snacks each day (breakfast and dinner on your own or planned with the group).
