Largely permaculture ignores what is outside zone 4 with a nod towards the wilderness in zone 5, but what about beyond that? Most permaculturists live not surrounded by untouched tracts of land, but in villages, suburbia, or rural communities. Your slice of permaculture heaven is most likely isolated by neighbors unaware (or marginally aware) of what you are trying to do. This workshop will discuss ways of creating community in your locale that will not only make you feel more connected but more secure in a quickly shifting world. Much of this workshop will be a facilitated discussion of what you have done to create community in your neighborhood.
