Join us for an incredible evening of permaculture, architecture, and urban design.  Seattle is a leader in urban agriculture, green building, walkable cities, and local food - urban dwellers of all stripes are eager to be a part of the solution for thriving, resilient cities.  Homeowners are demanding features that allow them to easily step into the flow of sustainable living - edible landscapes, small livestock like bees and chickens, rain gardens, legal grey water, water catchment, passive and active solar, outdoor kitchens for community gatherings, and more!

How do professionals in the green building industry include these elements in their designs?  What skills and new partnerships are needed to design, install, and then manage these systems over time? How might you market those skills? We have excellent leadership at the city and state level and active demand from customers, making now the perfect time for whole systems project designs to shine. Join us to learn more about Permaculture and how you can incorporate it in your projects. Jenny Pell from Permaculture Now will share her urban permaculture design experiences (successes and challenges), trends in the market, and look at neighborhood infrastructure that builds resilient communities.

Jenny Pell is a former tree planter, helicopter pilot, carpenter, and yurt builder. Jenny manages many of the Permaculture Now! projects. Based out of Seattle, WA Jenny works in Washington State, Central America, Hawaii, and Europe. Her slideshows and presentations inform, inspire, and motivate people to make changes that help move us towards a sustainable future.Permaculture Design Integration
