JPI Spring Workshop: Perma-Dynamics

June 6 @ 9:00 am - June 9 @ 5:00 pm

$400

We are excited to host Perma-Dynamics, a four-day residential workshop held on our farm in Floyd, Virginia. During this experience, participants will receive introductory instruction in permaculture design principles as applied to the creation of the biodynamic farm organism on Josephine Porter Institute’s farm. 

Perma-dynamics is a bridge workshop between the Permaculture Design Methodology and the intuitive and spiritual applications and insights of Biodynamic & Regenerative Agriculture.  This initial workshop will be continued in a series with the end result of a full Permaculture Design Certificate (continuing series dates TBD). This workshop is for the new or experienced farmer, gardener, or anyone interested in the profound practice of soil stewardship.

Early bird registration is $400 per person (discount to couples). Local herb, native plant, soil, and water experts and professionals will be featured in this four-day event. Camping is encouraged, dorm-style lodging can be reserved through JPI (call for details).
If you have any questions on registration,  please contact Lisa Thompson at jpiadmin@jpibiodynamics.org  or call 540-745-7030
