Title: Building Resilient Communities Through Ecological Design: A Permaculture workshop for planners 
Description: Are you looking for innovative ways to build resiliency in your community or region? Are you planning for future food, economic and ecological needs within your community or region? Have you considered how current plans and regulations may be in conflict with creating a sustainable, resilient community? Join Steve Whitman, AICP, and Stacey Doll, AICP, for an informative and interactive workshop on building resilient communities through ecological design. Using their education and experience in permaculture design and planning, they will provide: - A framework for working toward more ecological solutions for your community or region; - Tools to identify barriers to sustainable solutions and opportunities to create more resilient solutions that are grounded in the culture and geography of your community or region; - A range of case study examples; and - An overview of the existing Permaculture and Transition Town movements, how they are self-organizing, how they could be allies to planners, and the range of projects they are working to implement. The workshop will be held on November 1, 2013 at the Nashua Regional Planning Commission offices at 9 executive Park Drive, Suite 201, Merrimack, NH, 03054. The workshop will begin at 8:30 am and conclude at 4:30 pm with a brown bag lunch break. The cost of the workshop is $150. The audience for this workshop is primarily professional planners.
