Hello, just wanted to make note of our Rio Salado Permaculture Guild providing permaculture education and community to the East Valley. People outside of the East Valley are more than welcome to attend events, but our events are limited to within the East Valley boundaries. We are family friendly encouraging children to attend work events, providing kids classes, and childcare at most events.
We hold a Permaculture Design Course twice a year - Spring and Fall. $650 if you make the Early Bird Discount deadline. More info at Four Directions Permaculture
Thanks for the post Cris. I don"t know if I would have found your guild without stumbling upon this thread. I just moved to Tempe and found the Valley Permaculture Alliance, but I think your events will be much closer to me. Hope to see you at an event sometime.

I decided to start sharing on a wider scale this year. I figured a lot of people who discover permaculture through the web or a book would miss us if we only advertised locally.
We just had our monthly meeting last night. Next meeting is Feb 21st in Mesa. We'll be in Tempe the weekend of the 25th and 26th at ASU for Local to Global. Our next big event though is a workday at a home in Gilbert. We're doing earthworks (human and Bobcat scale) and planting the beginnings of a food forest. This is Feb 4th.
We have a one day Permaculture class – July 28th 2012. Its a full day...... powerpoint, activities and tour for $40. 8.30a - 4.30p with a community potluck lunch. A FANTASTIC DEAL!!

AND Registration has begun for the 72 hr certificated Permaculture Design Course in the Fall 2012, go here....
http://www.4dirs.com/fdpc/pc_PDC.htm A primary feature of this course is that you will personally experience permaculture by taking the classes at permacultured homesites with experienced local teachers and experts, and do so in a perfectly sized group for incredible collaboration and friendships.
Every PDC around the world has the same basic course topics, the difference apart from the teachers style, is the location. Every location will have more about where you are at than another site. Every PDC is similar but none are the same!!!
Don's PDC is a drylands, urban living Course
AND remember this course is for saving money, which is making money. It is about your future, more self reliant, more community and more vibrant health.
