I'm part of CORE—a small non-profit in north Texas that organized a few years ago to fight off a coal-fired power plant in our county (just south of the TX/OK border). www.TexomaCORE.org. We’re now focusing on local food production as a key to sustainability and transition.
To that end, two of our members are hosting a PERMACULTURE DESIGN CERTIFICATION COURSE at Wildscape Acres near Ravenna, Texas, from Sep 25–Oct 9, 2010 — led by PATRICIA ALLISON with Dylan Ryals-Hamilton, Mateo Ryall, and guests. Patricia is well-known in permaculture circles and has been teaching the course since 1994.
