Keep up on what is happening in the Permaculture World both locally and around the world.

Mocassin Lake

We are excited to be partnering with Moccasin Lake Nature Park, a 50 acre wild reserve in the heart of the most populated county on the East Coast – Pinellas – for our early 2012 series of courses and workshops. The park offers many opportunities to learn from the natural world as well as some exciting permaculture design potential. We couldn’t ask for a better place to facilitate permaculture education.

The park has already implemented a number of aspects of sustainability with off grid capacity, including solar panels, compost toilets and a windmill to pump water from well. Location:

Moccasin Lake Water Tower

There is a lot of future potential, as well with plans for food production, including a food forest, aquaculture, native edibles, and more. An immediate neighbor is a watershed to the bay, providing a beautiful place to enjoy lunch while observing water systems. The classroom is climate controlled and includes a refrigerator and microwave; there is a learning center and museum that illustrates the local ecosystems and wildlife. We feel the rich and diverse environment of Moccasin Lake Nature Park is the perfect place to learn permaculture.

Products For The Permaculture Designer

Some of these products are not strictly ideal by permaculture standards, yet can fullfill a need during the complete transition and can be an improvement over existing products. An example of this would be having a front lawn that you have plans to plant a food forest sometime down the road and instead of using a gas or electric lawn mower you can upgrade to a reel/push mower. Please feel free to contact us on any products available and known that meet permaculture standards or way of thinking so we can add them here for our Permaculture Friends.
