Our speaker this month is James Spicer of Green Country Permaculture. You might ask, ‘What in the world is Permaculture?” One definition is: Permaculture is the conscious design of ‘cultivated’ ecosystems that have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is a harmonious integration of people into the landscape in such a way that the land grows in richness, productivity and aesthetic beauty. WOW! (This definition was taken off the internet)
James started Green Country Permaculture in Tulsa in 2012. James grew up in Colorado where he spent many hours observing natural eco-systems and learned the importance of sustainable communities and local food. James attended the agro-ecology program at Prescott College in Arizona where he learned sustainable practices in agriculture and landscape management. He continued his education in Oregon where he received his certificate in Permaculture Design. Since then, he has been working with homeowners and farmers in Northeastern Oklahoma, helping them to design and establish ecological solutions for their properties.
James will speak on breaking down the principals of Permaculture and how they apply to the landscape.
