Eager permaculture students meet each other on the opening night of the Verge Permaculture PDC

Calgary’s permaculture community is chock full of inspiring individuals who are actively creating their own meaningful work through small businesses, small grassroots projects, and non-profit initiatives. Last fall, I had the opportunity to take part in the ever-popular Verge Permaculture 72 hour Permaculture Design Certificate. My friends at Verge and I have partnered to organize an evening of inspiration, community-building and dialogue on Saturday, May 25. This gathering is geared at permaculture students, but is open to the public for anyone trying to figure out how to move their world-changing dreams and passions to reality. Admission is only $5. Come out for a fun evening connecting to the most dynamic movement for positive change in Calgary ~ Alla

About the “Blitz”

Are you working on a permaculture business or project? This is your chance for feedback and support!

 Some of you have already launched permaculture-inspired businesses or non-profit projects. Others are in the dreaming and scheming phase. We’ll create a space for supporting each other, offering insightful feedback, resources and advice on specific projects for volunteers within the group.

How it works:

The “Blitz” is based on the ProAction Cafe model – a simple but effective facilitation tool that creates a fun, interactive space to collectively brainstorm business and project ideas of participants. It taps into the intelligence of the group to offer insightful feedback, resources and advice on specific projects for volunteers within the group. More about ProAction Café
