June 2, 2017 – Dexter Dover Area Towns in Transition (DDATT) will host its free First Friday public discussion on the topic of Permaculture, at the Abbott Memorial Library in Dexter, beginning at 6 PM.
What is Permaculture? Permaculture, or permanent (agri)culture, means working with natural forces – wind, sun, & water – to provide food, shelter, water & other needs with minimum labor & without depleting the land.  Permaculture is a holistic approach based on traditional agricultural practices.” (from the Permaculture.net website).
Steve Degoosh and Brooke Isham from Sangerville have been working with permaculture concepts for a few years now and have agreed to introduce the basic concepts, describe how they’re trying to apply those concepts on their small farm, and facilitate sharing information about this relatively recent approach to growing food.
DDATT has shown two or three films over the past years about Permaculture, interest in which is rapidly rising among the food producers in our area; the films are part of the Abbott Library’s collection and are available for checkout.
DDATT’s mission is to help our area reduce our use of fossil fuels and create a more stable rural economy.
