We are so excited to announce a day long farm-based mini-festival, with special guests; irie food vendors; labyrinth walks; permaculture, wild-crafting, healing arts, yoga, and herbal workshops; and opportunities to connect with various environmental and social justice campaigns.
As most of you know, we’re just beginning a two-week residential intensive ‘Earth Activist Training’ Permaculture Design Certification course with international permaculture designer and best-selling author Starhawk.
We’re happy to announce that a number of evening presentations will be free and open to the public.
While we normally only send our a few emails/ blog posts a year in this format, I’ll be sending a few this week with more details for these opportunities. If you’re not interested, please just delete, or let me know what types of announcements you’d like to receive.
Read below for a list of presentations, and feel free to share with potentially interested friends or networks.
THIS EVENING will be a introduction to permaculture design with Starhawk, Charles WIlliams, Rushelle Frazier, and Keith Morris and a screening of ‘The Growing Edge’.
All presentations (except the open UVM sessions) will be at 7:30 pm here at Willow Crossing Farm.
All-local, organic farm-sourced dinner will be served at 6 pm, and is $12-15 per person, all you can eat.
Dinner guests must RSVP in advance.

Permaculture: The Growing Edge is an antidote to environmental despair, a hopeful and practical look at a path to a viable, flourishing future. The film introduces us to inspiring examples of projects, and includes a visit to David Holmgren’s own homestead, tracking deer with naturalist Jon Young, sheet mulching an inner-city garden with Hunters Point Family, transforming an intersection into a gathering place with City Repair and joining mycologist Paul Stamets as he cleans up an oil spill with mushrooms. We interview some of the key figures in the Permaculture movement, including David Holmgren, Penny Livingston-Stark, James Stark, Paul Stamets, Mark Lakeman, Dr. Elaine Ingham, Maddy Harland, and others.
Permaculture is a sustainable system of earth care that offers solutions to many of our grave environmental problems and a hopeful, proactive vision of change. The Permaculture movement, started by Australians Bill Mollison and David Holmgren in the nineteen seventies, is now a worldwide network of skilled ecological designers, teachers, food growers, natural builders, environmental activists and visionaries. “Permaculture is the key to a post-carbon future,” says Maddy Harlan, editor of Permaculture Magazine.
All presentations begin at 7:30 pm.
All local organic Farm-sourced dinner is served at 6 pm, $12-15, must RSVP in advance for dinner!

Prospect Rock Permaculture is a growing edible forest garden, ecological homestead, and education center in Johnson along the Lamoille River. We combine reforestation, wildlife refuge, and ecological restoration with food production and community building, while educating about and experimenting with sustainable techniques and ways of building. We grow seed with High Mowing Organic Seeds, keep bees and wild craft medicinal plants for Honey Gardens Apiaries, grow fruits, nuts, and berries with Elmore Roots Nursery, and also work researching and educating about biodiesel. Be in touch for updates about classes, workshops, tours, and internship or apprentice opportunities.
