Join us for 2 full days of Hands-On Mushroom Cultivation training at the Planet Repair Institute with Ja Schindler and Fungi For the People.
We will spend the weekend exploring many exciting approaches to home and small business scale edible and medicinal mushroom growing, with a strong focus on growing regionally appropriate varieties on easily accessible recycled materials. The entire process is worked through in a hands-on format and everyone will leave with the materials and know-how to start growing their own.
The Banksy of Permaculture – back by popular demand! This is the third consecuative year that the Planet Repair Institute and Permaculture Meetup will be hosting Oliver Kellhammer – one of Canada’s most experienced and dynamic permaculture designers. Oliver is well known for his work as a “botanical land-artist” who creates guerrilla-style food forests interventions to reclaim neglected urban spaces for the commons that shake people out of their passive, routinized life, by forcing an engagement with the urban ecology. Oliver has successfully protected these interventions the the guise of public art.
Last year, Oliver’s talk highlighted urban permaculture strategies for climate change resilience, his climate change forest experiment on Cortes Island, and his attempts at “botanical re-mixing”, open-source landscaping, and hacking the urban ecology. This year Kellhammer will be coming directly from Finland where he has been collaborating with other artists at the Finnish BioArt Society on the concept of “Deep Time”.
This event will be hosted at the Planet Repair Institute – a fifteen-year old urban permaculture site and the birth-place of City Repair and the Village Building Convergence. Join us at 6pm for a tour and history of Planet Repair Institute and Share-it Square, followed by Oliver’s talk at 7pm.

From the Occupy Love website: “Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Fierce Light) on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet, as he asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”
Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening: millions of people are deciding that enough is enough – the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life.”

We hope to see you there!

Howdy folks! Here’s a fun event to put on your radars – a Radical Mycology workshop happening at the Planet Repair Institute on May 26th, between 2-5 PM.
The Planet Repair schedule for the upcoming Village Building Convergence 13 is all set! Here’s your official invite to join our team - behold, these awesome builders:
Molly Murphy (an actual “MudGirl” from Canada!)
Sarah Frances Michaelson (from Minneapolis!)
and Jane Gray (from Sellwood!)!
Together they will lead a dazzling array of projects, including finishing various long-standing projects and some pretty impressive new ones that contribute energy-impact as well as beauty. Though this year we will see most of our natural building work completed, we will also host a few permaculture workshops as we get ready to host our third-annual urban permaculture design course which begins in June! See you soon!
