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?

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.

Community Training in Ecological Design (4 part series)
(08:30 AM - 05:30 PM)

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.

AICP CM credits and CEUs for AIA, NH Certified Professional Landscapers and NOFA Organic Landcare Practioners have been submitted. Please register on-line as space is limited.
