Jason Smith: Permaculture and the Ecologies of a Positive Future

Jason Smith will provide an introductory view into the ecology-based agricultural models described by the systems-arranging design science called permaculture.  He will outline the origins and fundamental structures of the permaculture movement and articulate the positive solutions it offers to the global challenges we will face in the future with climate and social changes.  The program will highlight the most common and relevant applications of permaculture in the Idaho Panhandle.

 Mr. Smith is a designer and consultant specializing in cold temperate climate agroforestry systems.  Operating in the northern Rockies international edge, he is a local representative of the worldwide permaculture movement. Jason lives off-the-grid in Boundary County.
