Subject: Bill Mollison USA Workshop 

Dear Friend, 
 I would like to invite you to a 3-day workshop by Dr. Bill Mollison, 
 the founder of Permaculture, October 10-12, 2000 in NW Louisiana. His 
 course precedes a Permaculture Design Certificate Course offered 
 October 16-28 by Geoff Lawton, appointed Director of the Permaculture 
 Research Institute by Mollison in 1997. These events will mark the 
 beginning of the demonstration center being established at this site. 
 Internationally renowned teacher and author of seven books, Dr. 
 Mollison, called the Father of Permaculture, is stepping out of 
 retirement to teach a three-day Permaculture course at the Northwest 
 Louisiana Commerce Center. 
 This course supports efforts to develop a North American demonstration 
 of sustainable agriculture and commerce at the deactivated Louisiana 
 Army Ammunition Plant, where plans are under way to renovate the area 
 for Permaculture practices. 
 Please see the attached invitation and registration form. Please 
 contact me if you cannot open these forms and would like to receive 
 information by mail.

 Permaculture education includes principles and practices of 
 sustainable soil, water, crop, forest, architectural, business, and 
 finance systems ­ ethical investment, community loan support and small 
 business management. 
 Permaculture, from PERMAnent agriCULTURE, is an integrated system of 
 design including not only agriculture, horticulture, architecture and 
 ecology but also land access strategies and economic systems for small 
 businesses and communities. 
 Taken from the Latin, permanens, to endure or persist through time and 
 cultura, cultures - permaculture is an interdisciplinary design 
 science focused on sustainable system design. Sustainable systems are 
 defined as those that, over their lifetime, produce energy equivalent 
 to or in excess of what they consume. 
 Permaculture operates on three ethics: care of the earth, care of the 
 species and return of excess to the first two.
