Join Paolo Lugari and Gunter Pauli for a unique workshop based on the story 
of Gaviotas, an
extraordinary village in Colombia. The 30-year history of Gaviotas 
demonstrates how human creativity
and commitment can overcome enormous environmental, economic and social 
obstacles. Mr. Lugari
will describe exciting new developments at Gaviotas and explain how they 
are relevant to current
environmental problems in the US. Multimedia presentations will provide 
participants with a glimpse of
life in the village. Mr. Pauli will provide examples of other innovative 
communities around the world and
speak about the 12 axioms of new economics. Together we will also reflect 
on the difficulty of
translating vision into action and sustaining long-term change efforts. 
Come to be inspired and energized
about tackling the challenges in your own life, work and community.
Mr. Lugari is visiting the United States for the first time in 17 years, 
and Santa Fe will be his only stop.

Affordable, durable and locally available natural materials such as mud, 
straw, bamboo and stone will be used in hands-on projects. Innovative and 
traditional techniques include adobe, strawclay, cob, earthen finishes and 
passive solar design.

The Convergence will empower participants to share and adapt these skills 
within their local communities. Upon returning to their respective 
countries participants will host trainings, reaching hundreds of people 
thanks to their involvement with existing grassroots networks. This group 
of visionaries and teachers have specifically been invited because they 
have already shown a remarkable ability to create positive change.

September 20, 21, 22, 2002  Permaculture Design Workshop in Oaxaca Mexico
Many individuals perceive themselves as impotent in the face of an 
increasingly-present planetary crisis. Permaculture offers positive 
solutions to this global dilemma utilizing ecological principles as the 
basis for the design of: integrated food production systems, sustainable 
construction techniques, appropriate technologies and sustainable natural 
resource management practices. During the three-day course, this integrated 
design methodology will be described and applied to real situations 
presented by participants interested in establishing sustainable and 
diverse production systems that maintain a harmonious balance with their 
surrounding ecosystems.

The first book to locate Permaculture in the American Landscape

Activist Editor Toby Hemenway has assembled a practical and user friendly 
guide to backyard permaculture. Skillfully written and full of examples 
from the foremost permaculture gardens across the country, the text 
introduces permaculture principles at work, explaining the basics of this 
ingenious language of design. Chapters cover Soil, Water Management, and 
Choice of Plants, as well as more advanced subjects as Interplanting, 
Guilds, Forest Gardens and Garden Evolution. Drawing on a wealth of 
Permaculture Lessons and Lore, the author documents the dramatic successes 
of ordinary men and women in bringing barren landscapes to life and in 
doing so, he swings wide the permaculture gate for all garden lovers to enter.

Permaculture Film Series planned Sites Needed
I am embarking on an ambitious video series about sustainable communities 
and permaculture systems. I would be interesting in hearing from anyone 
(particularly in Southern California -- but I would be willing to travel to 
very special and unique projects elsewhere) who currently has a complete 
permaculture system, passive solar house, earth sheltered building, straw 
bale home, innovative water catchment systems, food forests, or any other 
system that demonstrate aspects of sustainable living. I am also seeking 
individuals who are planning any type of such systems and about to begin 
the design phase. Designers, teachers, and other experts in the above field 
are also needed to lend their expertise to the program.

Participants would be expected to appear on camera to explain their system 
and take our small video crew on a tour of it and each one will get a 
finished copy of the video.

Designers, teachers, and technical experts who are interested in 
participating in the development of this project are invited to also get in 
touch and become involved. Those who lend a significant amount of time to 
the project will be granted licensing rights to the completed series 
depending on their level of involvement.

Permaculture Credit Union Mission Statement

We pool the financial resources of the people who believe in the ethics of 
Permaculture and strive to redirect those resources to Earth-friendly and 
socially responsible loans and investments.

The credit union promotes thrift among its members and provides credit at 
reasonable rates. It creates the opportunity for members to control the use 
of their money and contribute to the revitalization of their community and 
the planet.

Q. What is a Credit Union?

A. After successive years of bad weather during the mid-19th century, 
European farmers needed a way to save their farms from foreclosure by urban 
banks. To do this they formed groups to pool their savings and lend to each 
other. The first credit union in the US was organized in 1909. However, it 
took a severe drought, the Great Depression, and the courage of President 
Franklin D. Roosevelt to stand up to the banks and create the Federal 
Credit Union Act of 1934.

Credit Unions continue to be a cooperative of individuals with a common 
bond who save their money and make loans. Credit Unions are member-owned, 
not-for-profit institutions. Banks are corporations operated for profit. 
Credit Unions are regulated by the chartering state and the Federal 
government and, as with banks, all deposits are Federally insured for up to
