Event description

Permaculture Blue Mountains.Org is eXciTeD to invite you to an Advanced Design Blitz with Rosemary Morrow.

This is a full day workshop with our legendary Rowe Morrow. Participants will be those looking to design beyond their own home and will have an understanding of permaculture.

Bring your drawing materials and paper as Rowe leads us into a brief design exercise focussing on how we can support one another and humanity by contributing to a community space. Rowe will discuss the difference permaculture is making globally and how we can meet the challenges, sustainable development goals, and local needs as a restorative practice.

We know Permaculture is proving extraordinarily relevant for all people including those in refugee camps and whilst Rowe has chosen not to accept money for this Advanced Design Blitz, Rowe would be delighted if the money donated can be put toward supporting refugees. Those of you not able to attend are still welcome to make a donation of any size to help support Rowe's work.

And thanks to Manu for providing the link to Rowe Morrow’s 'TEDX Katoomba' talk which has just been released on YouTube. Delve back with Rowe to Hanoi, Vietnam in 1986, "which enabled her to build on her basic knowledge to create food gardens, where there was low water, bad soils and almost no resources."

Facilitator's Background
Born in Perth, Rosemary Morrow (Rowe) was claimed early by the Earth; plants, animals, stones, weather. Some years in the Kimberleys as a young girl confirmed it. Later she trained in agriculture science with which she was very disappointed, then moved to France where she lived in the L'Arche community. Later at Jordans Village in England she realised she would become a Quaker. Back in Australia in the 1980s Rowe's Permaculture Design Course provided the basis for a concern for Earth restoration. She considers permaculture to be 'sacred knowledge' to be carried and shared with others. Since then, when asked, she has travelled to teach the Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) to others who, due to circumstances, could not access it any other way. This took her to immediate post-war Vietnam as well as Cambodia, Uganda, Ethiopia and other countries. Rowe's present concern is to make teaching sustainable and encourage others to succeed her as teachers.

We look forward to you joining us. Bring your lunch , drawing materials and paper.
