Mark DuPont will present - "Permaculture in the Klamath Knot, Transitioning to a Post Carbon Culture in Northwestern California" at the Campus Center for Appropriate Technology on February 9, 6:00 to 8:00 PM. The Klamath Region of Northwestern California encompasses the interior rivers and mountains of the Klamath Watershed as well as the north coast of California. This bio-region has a unique role in the West as a refuge of geological, biological and cultural diversity, and holds it's own set of challenges and resources as we learn to live with a contracting economy and the diminishing availability of energy and resources. This presentation examines how we can design and create sustainable human habitats that mimic the complexity and resiliency of natural systems. Mark has 25 years of experience in Permaculture as a farmer, nurseryman, instructor, consultant and organic inspector in California and Latin America. He is a founding member and current President of the Mid Klamath Watershed Council, and has worked on every level from small garden to large farm, village to watershed.
The presentation will also touch on more information for the upcoming 10-month Klamath Knot Permaculture Design Course. This course will draw on a wide array of sites and instructors, from the Northcoast to the interior Klamath River, meeting one weekend a month, March through October, and offering an in-depth learning experience through the seasons. Upon completion participants will receive a Permaculture Design Certificate and the skills and tools to make positive change within their communities.
