part of the income to the Southern California Convergence Funds. Please

Permaculture Earthworks at Sky Mountain Institute

Increase your knowledge of permaculture earthworks during this hands on 
3 day workshop taught by Paul Wheaton.   You will be able to watch a raw 
San Diego hillside side go through a permaculture design process. >From 
mapping to final construction to planting out of the installations.  It 
will all be done during these 3 days.  Currently an estimated 350,000 
gallons of runoff water runs down through the property untouched.  Some 
of the earthworks designed and constructed in this class will be placed 
and designed to alter this erosive overland flow and to maximize water 
capture and retention in the landscape.  Earthworks will be constructed 
to create cool zones to give plants a reprieve from the hot summer sun 
and shield them from the local winds.  The earthworks will be mulched 
and the construction of a food forest will take place with the planting 
of cover crops, fruit trees, and support species trees.  Course 
participants will have the opportunity for hands on participation and to 
contribute during the design process and work on all of the earthworks
