[FLXPERMACULTURE.NET] June 14 - 18: Ecology of Transformation, Plainfield MA

From:    "rafter t. sass" <rafter@...>

Hello friends,

This June I'll be teaching an exciting hybrid 4-day workshop in western
Mass, combining permaculture design AND social project design.

Sorry for any cross postings!

When: *Sunday, June 14 - Thursday, June 18 *(Sun & Thu half-days)
Where: *the SEEDS Festival*, at Earthdance Community, *Plainfield MA*
How: http://earthdance.net/seedsfest.htm

What:
This workshop will combine the participatory exploration and design studio
of the *Liberation Ecolog*y workshop, with the mushroom-centric permaculture
of *Mycoscaping*. We'll weave back and forth between tools for designing
healthy, abundant landscapes, and strategies for creating the vibrant and
just society that can care for those landscapes. Social design and ecosystem
design will enrich and empower each other.

This four-day participatory workshop gives participants the tools to start
reclaiming ecological *and* social health - from specific techniques to broad
strategies. Come prepared for a hands-on experience - we’ll be wrestling
with hard questions, and going outside and getting our hands dirty!

In the *Mycoscaping* stream, we'll be learning about - and implementing - a
variety of mushroom species and cultivation techniques in the landscape.
We'll be looking at growing food and medicine everywhere, enriching the
health of our veggie gardens and perennial plantings with fungal
polyculture, bioremediation, wild mushrooms and forest ecology, and *more. *
*
*
In the *Liberation Ecology* stream, we'll be learning how to design
collaborative projects that support the health of vibrant, whole
communities.  We'll map our relationships with natural and human
communities, and create strategies to methodically connect *our own desires
for change* with *large scale transformation.*

We'll all be collaborating to discover the emergent patterns and principles
that arise from this hybrid workshop.

 Introductions to Permaculture, to edible forest gardening, and related
topics, will be incorporated along the way.

[FLXPERMACULTURE.NET] Teach for the Freeskool!

*Please Forward*

Greetings everybody!

   It's that time again. The Ithaca Freeskool has had yet another great
session and as the last days wind down until the start of our May, we look
ahead to the Summer term: June/July/August! That means we need YOU!!

   May 10th is the deadline for teachers (that's you!) to get class
proposals to us. We want your skills, knowledge, wisdom and spirit for
grassroots community empowerment!

 Teach a Workshop for the Ithaca Freeskool!

    The Ithaca Freeskool is looking for folks to facilitate free classes
for the public for the Winter/Spring Term - February 1st through April 30th.

 The Freeskool is an all volunteer, grassroots education
project that seeks to contribute to local empowerment and community
self-determination by providing a structure by which folks can share their
skills, knowledge, and experience with one another. We envision an Ithaca
where everyone is always learning and always teaching.

The Freeskool is currently geared towards Adults and Teenagers.

The deadline for submitting a class proposal is May 10th!

How it works:

Teachers are self-selecting and choose to teach whatever they feel like
that fits within the broad Freeskool mission. Classes happen whenever the
teacher wants them to be, and are as long or short as the teacher feels
like.

Examples:

Raul decides to teach a one time only Candle Making workshop. He
decides it will be on June 17th at 5pm and will last 3 hours.

Susan decides she will teach a Jiu Jitsu Class every
Thursday at 6pm with a day long workshop on the second Saturday of each
month as well.

Elise decides to do a weekend long Home Disaster Preparedness class for
the second weekend of August from 9am-4pm, each day.

Nettles, Desobi and friends want to teach Anarchism 101 every Friday at 6pm.

Teachers are responsible for finding a location for their classes. We can
help with that if you are having trouble finding somewhere suitable.
Usually, folks tend to host classes in their homes, parks, cafes and a
variety of other locales.

Classes are put on a calendar which we publish and distribute, with course
descriptions and other relevant information on the back. The information
is also available on our blog at http://www.ithacafreeskool.wordpress.com

 Check out the "Class Descriptions" section of the blog to get a better
idea of how they are formatted and what info we need from you.

Information that we need from you:

Teacher Name:
Public Contact(to be listed on calendar for students to contact you) Class
Name:
Proposed Dates and Time:
Proposed Location:
Students must RSVP: yes/no (this way you can know how many folks to
expect) Short Description of Class: (Preferably not more than 6 sentences)
Requirements:

We need all of this information at the same time to prevent our having to
sort through dozens of emails to get the calendar together.

If you are interested in teaching, learning more about the Freeskool, or
helping to distribute calendars, please contact us at
ithaca_freeskool@...

You can join our list-serv: ithaca_freeskool@...

Cheers,

The Freeskool Collective
PS: Don't be shy!

[FLXPERMACULTURE.NET] Online Basic Chicken Course

From:    "gretaxyz225" <peakshrink@...>

If you know of someone who is THINKING of getting into chickens, but wants a
good overall introductory course, I'm teaching one online Sat June 13th.  It
won't be appropriate for those who already are well versed in the field, but
more suited for someone who says "Where do I start?"

This link gives a complete course breakdown and registration links:

[FLXPERMACULTURE.NET] Reminder - forum on gas drilling on Wed night


From:    "Gay Nicholson" <gaynicholson@...>

Open Forum on "The New Gas Drilling: What Local Governments Can Do"

Wednesday, May 6, 2009
7:00 - 9:00 pm
Women's Community Building, 100 W. Seneca Street, Ithaca

Presenters:
Dr. William Pammer, Commissioner, Planning and Environmental Management
for Sullivan County (Monticello), NY

Dr. Stephen Penningroth, Executive Director, Community Science
Institute, Ithaca, NY

Over two thousand Tompkins County land owners, and thousands more in the
surrounding Southern Tier, have signed leases to permit Marcellus Shale
gas drilling on their property. Many expect to see drilling begin later
this year, perhaps as early as summer.
 While some welcome the drilling and other dread it, a common concern for
all is the protection of our clean water, our land, and our quality of
life. A critical question in our community is "What can local
governments do to protect those resources?"
http://www.co.sullivan.ny.us/documentView.asp?docid=768

Dr. Pammer will describe the work of a Gas Drilling Task Force in
Sullivan County. A group of County officials spent many months
researching possible impacts and the authority of local municipal
governments. Their recently released Task Force report outlines 21
recommendations that will be presented to their County Legislature. The
full report (84 pages) is attached; recommendations are on pages 2-5.

Dr. Penningroth, biochemist and toxicologist, has studied water quality
in our area for many years. He believes a reasonable estimate of
drinkng water that will be contiminated near drilling sites is between
1% and 5%. He will describe why and how to test private water wells so
that land owners discover problems and have solid scientific evidence
should contamination occur.

Hello!

Yes you have been getting a lot of emails from me. But that's a good thing! It means that there is a lot of positive activity going on in this wonderful city. If I were in town this Saturday I would definitely be going to this. A unique chance to check out some of the "green" buildings through the lens of an architect.

Best,

Adriana

Hi all,

I was hoping you could help me spread the word about the Green buildings tour this Saturday with Green Home NYC.  The tour is subtantially undersubscribed this year and we may need to cancel it if we do not get more people to sign up.  It is going to be really informative and interesting to see the amazing things we are doing in NYC to make our city more energy efficient and environmentally friendly.  This is a great opportunity to have an architect led tour through some amazing buildings and businesses.

Please check out the link for more info and pass this info on to anyone who may be interested.

[FLXPERMACULTURE.NET] downtown garden

I am friends with a refugee family from Burma who would like to be able to garden near their home in the Southside neighborhood. They didn't get their application into Community Gardens in time this year, but a spot nearer their home would work even better in terms of transportation, child care, etc. Would anyone know of any spots that would be available?


Thanks,  Margaret
