Full Moon Workshop: Visionary Permaculture
with Delvin Solkinson and Grace

“Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex,
the solutions remain embarrassingly simple”
– Bill Mollison, Co-Originator of Permaculture

 

Permaculture shares an ecological design toolkit combining traditional knowledge from the worlds indigenous cultures and modern scientific understandings on how to design lifestyles, homes, gardens, farms and communities in a way that cares for people, the planet and their future. Permaculture presents possibilities for retrofiting, rebuilding and reconnecting our systems of food production, education, governance, economics, education, gardening and all other visible and invisible structures of society. By redesigning the way we manage energy and resources, we can cultivate resilience in our life, work, and relationships as well as in our community and ecosystem.

Pilgrimage to the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors to join Delvin Solkinson and a group of conscious learners converging to experience the new edge of permaculture. Together we will explore the art and naturescapes at CoSM while sharing in an advanced introduction to some core concepts and creative ways to look at challenges and solutions differently. A design charrette will give participants an opportunity to contribute creatively to the ongoing process of permaculture design at CoSM. We will also learn how to make a healing lip balm with medicine harvested from CoSM.

Attend all four seasonal permaculture workshops to get a CoSM Visionary Permaculture Design Four Seasons Workshop Program Certificate of Completion.

Recently he completed a PDC in Portland with Toby Hemenway, one in Greece with Rosemary Morrow and a second Diploma through the Permaculture Institute. Currently he is doing graduate work under the mentorship of Larry Santoyo and Looby Macnamara. Creating curriculum, making media and crafting free, open source learning and teaching tools has been focus of his current Doctoral Degree in permaculture education. He volunteers at CoSM on the Board of Directors and as the senior managing editor of CoSM Journal of Visionary Culture, and volunteers to teach permaculture as a fundraiser for the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors.

Grace

Grace was raised on a small family farm nestled on the edge of the woods in the wilds of Washington state, where she developed a keen love of nature and an appreciation for its many uses in everyday life. A crafter by nature, she started developing her own skincare line and successfully selling it to individuals, local stores and at farmers markets fifteen years ago, eventually even garnering interest in her products from national chains. She has scaled back production of her products to allow her to focus on her love of jewelry making and her work at CoSM, but is working on a recipe book to eventually be able to share her years of research and recipes with a wider audience.
