Upcoming Short Workshops at CRMPI

Project: Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute

Posted by Jerome Osentowski over 9 years ago

These are day long workshops taught at CRMPI's mature food forest by Jerome Osentowski. Come up for a day or a weekend and get a taste of Permaculture in action.

Forest Garden Workshop:  7/16/2011

Learn how to create your own edible landscape with the concept of Forest Gardening.  Using fruit trees, berry bushes/shrubs and underlying annuals, create microhabitats that support both human and natural needs.  Learn to turn your yard into a living garden at the oldest forest garden demonstration site in the US.

Pre-registration is required.

Workshop cost: $75 (includes materials and lunch).  It runs from 9:00am-4:30pm.  Meet at the Basalt Library at 8:45am to carpool. 

 

Greenhouse Workshop: 7/17/2011

Grow tropical bananas in the Rockies?  That's right. Learn how to grow your own food year-round, even tropical fruits, using Climate Battery technology.  Learn the intricacies and design of greenhouse growing with an emphasis on perennial poly-culture and making the most of your space.  Learn how to stack functions to make your greenhouse more effective and efficient. Or, if you don't have a greenhouse, just come to see how this low-tech greenhouse design produces papayas, bananas and other tropical goodies at 7,000+ feet above sea level.

And eat a couple Papayas while you're at it!  Pre-registration is required.

Workshop cost: $75 (includes materials and lunch).  It runs from 9:00am-4:30pm.  Meet at the Basalt Library at 8:45am to carpool.

 

Medicinal & Culinary Herb Workshop:  7/9/2011

Mary O’Brien and Jerome Osentowski will give a workshop on medicinal & culinary herbs. Mary has been studying and practicing herbal medicine since 1987, completing the Chartered Herbalist program with Dominion Herbal College and studying with various teachers, including Rosemary Gladstar, Brigitte Mars, Michael Moore, and Stephen Buhner. She has taught herbal medicine and medicine making in Steamboat Springs and Edwards, Colorado. For 16 years she lived in Steamboat Springs and worked as an EMT, massage therapist and energy worker while teaching, leading edible and medicinal herb walks, building and maintaining a medicinal garden for the local botanical park and making herbal products for local commerce. Her emphasis is on using native and locally grown plants for medicine rather then bringing in plants from other bioregions. After recently returning from the Peace Corps in Kenya, she is now expanding her learning and practice into Permaculture design.?? 

Pre-registration is required.

Workshop cost: $50 (includes course materials & lunch).  Workshop runs from 9:00am – 4:30pm.  Meet at Basalt Public Library for carpooling at 8:45am.

 

Please email [email protected] or call 970-927-4158 to reserve a space in any of these workshops.  www.crmpi.org

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

pri_teacher

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
