Cooperating with Landscapes in Oklahoma: How the Principles of Permaculture Bring Resilience to Sites

"Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature..."  Bill Mollison

Join us to hear from three practitioners speak on the subject of Permaculture, enjoy lunch with locally grown food and earn one hour of HSW credit while considering how you might incorporate more resilient practices in site design.
