Austin Permaculture Guild is hosting our first Permie campout! This year’s theme is “Reclaiming Our Future.” As we head further into environmental, political, and social disarray we need to reclaim our individual, communal, and global wellbeing. What are tools, techniques, and ideologies that we need to apply to our daily lives? How can we help our friends, family, and community to create these necessary changes? No one person has the answer but together we can create a thriving world.
On Sunday we will also have a permablitz to create aquaponics and floating raft garden systems!
