"agriculture has been one of the greatest blessings and curses to civilization"
Curious about the title to this post? An upcoming three-day workshop in Stephentown, NY will dive deep into our problematic agricultural system and how permaculture and restorative practices can provide solutions. Taught by restoration agriculture guru Mark Shepard, the workshop runs from April 28th through April 30th at beautiful Back the Land Farm.
As we have inherited the tradition, agriculture requires massive inputs of energy to sow, harvest, and spread various biocides. This has had devastating effects on the environment and society. Restoration Agriculture seeks to use what we know about ecology to create food-producing systems that will require no additional energy inputs and yield an abundance for generations to come.
It will be a fun and inspirational weekend! Camping is available on site, lunch and dinner are provided, and the whole kit and caboodle costs $550 with some early bird discounts available. Learn more and buy tickets HERE and read Mark Shepard's bio HERE.
