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:
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. Lauren brings over twenty-five years of ecological landscape design and project management 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.
This workshop is offered by UNHCE and UNH Professional Development and Training. This annual conference is designed for managers, supervisors, team and project leaders.

Community Training in Ecological Design (4-part series) - Creating Resilient Communities through Low Cost, Accessible Permaculture Design Solutions and Strategies that work with Nature
Join Steve Whitman, Stacey Doll, Lauren Chase-Rowell, and Mary Tebo Davis as they lead you through an innovative training on Ecological Solutions for NH Communities. Developed from the full Permaculture Design Certification course curriculum, the training is geared toward community leaders (staff and volunteers), planners, and commission members to provide the necessary tools to plan, design, and develop a more resilient and sustainable future for your community’s infrastructure and economy while working in harmony with the natural world.
Utilizing Permaculture Design Principles, you will be led through a series of conversations, participatory activities, case study field trips, and a design charette to introduce the ecological design process. Participants will learn how integrated design stacks functions and addresses: biodiversity, secure food production models, water and energy systems, appropriate technologies, and adaptation planning and cooperation to help overcome barriers. Each participant will leave the training with tools and skills to work as an ecological designer within their community and on their own property to provide solutions for a better tomorrow.
