    Micro-climates and Soils as living organisms

    [Full details at http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/1755318/ ] As part of the study group for The Earth User's Guide to Permaculture, 2nd Edition, by Rosemary Morrow. This time around we will be covering ... * Chapter 5 is on Climates and microclimates * Chpater 6 is on Soils as living organisms. We will also determine how many chapters to cover for next month. We'll also talk again about observations you have made in the past month, and some general questions if anyone has them. People who are not reading the "EUGP" are welcome to attend these sessions, but it is strongly advised because you will get a lot more out of reading the book and doing the exercises than without.

    Intro to Permaculture Thinking (based on The Earth User's Guide to Permaculture)

    Due to high demand, Portland Peak Oil is presenting a second chance to participate in our "Introduction to Permaculture Thinking" session, based on the materials contained in Chapters 1 and 2 of The Earth User's Guide to Permaculture, 2nd Edition, by Rosemary Morrow, but expanding into a larger discussion on basic permaculture theory and whole systems thinking. Reading the chapters in advance is not mandatory, but it is highly recommended both for as a foundation for the discussion and because the book is a great introduction to hands-on permaculture techniques that anyone can use.

    The reading circle is open to anyone who is interested in learning about permaculture. The book can be obtained through Laughing Horse Books for $16.00. A limited number of scholarships are available - inquire at the meeting. The regularly scheduled reading circle meetings are the 1st Wednesdays of each month from 7-9 p.m. at St. Francis.
