Building Permanent Culture in Knoxville
I am a co-founder of the Tennessee Youth Environmental Network (TennYEN), a coalition of high school environmental clubs. TennYEN is holding its first annual Youth Empowerment Summit this June 4-8 at the Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont. During this gathering of motivated youth, we will be exploring environmental issues and solutions.
I believe that permaculture should definitely be included in our food-focused day- Wednesday June 6th. I would like student attendees to get a grasp of the basic principles of permaculture. Would anyone feel comfortable communicating the value of permaculture with examples in about an hour-long presentation?
Any ideas are appreciated!
