|Title:||Permaculture and Regenerative Food Systems|
|Location:||Rockport Opera House|
|Description:||In this presentation we will discuss an overview of the permaculture design process. We will highlight permaculture design principles and methods by looking at some case studies in Maine. We will begin by asking: how can we grow our own food and heal ecosystems at the same time? And we will dare to imagine ecosystems designed to produce food and other useful products for all species.
