Featured Event: Making the Big Bucks with Permaculture

Learn all about permaculture at this Sammamish Valley Grange event.

Paul Wheaton returns to Woodinville to present “Making the Big Bucks with Permaculture,” on Thursday night, Aug. 16 at 7:00 p.m. at the , a community event sponsored by Transition Woodinville.

Wheaton will begin the presentation by describing how the permaculture model compares to conventional and organic farming. He will then cover at least two-dozen ways to make money from having a rich diversity of permaculture systems.

As a permaculturist following in the footsteps of Bill Mollison, Sepp Holzer, and others like Fukuoka, Wheaton explains how to attract volunteers, offer internships, and other opportunities to teach others in exchange for labor and increased productivity.

Permaculture techniques that limit or eliminate many expenses, while offering a market niche for selling a diversity of produce, coppice, weeds, and other products to dramatically increase your profit margin are also highlighted.

A donation of $5 to 10 per person is suggested.
