Amanda Macon, manager of the Hayfork Farmers’ Market, recently returned from a Permaculture internship in Jawfa Jordon. There she spent time leaning and helping to ‘green the desert’ in one of the lowest and driest places on Earth—the Dead Sea Valley. This area is inhabited by traditional Bedouin tribes and displaced Palestinians.
On Tuesday February 17 beginning at 7 pm at Northern Delights Coffeehouse, 7091 Hwy. 3, Hayfork Amanda will show slides of the area and the group’s work with explanations, discussion and stories. Some will also touch on being a Western woman respectfully visiting a traditional Moslem culture.
An important part of traveling safely in foreign countries is of course maintaining one’s health.
There was sickness all around her but Amanda managed to keep herself healthy using essential oils, which she used to help others also. She will talk about this too.
As we face more droughts in California, with predictions of increased weather disruption, some of what Amanda learned is applicable here. Permaculture principles certainly are.
So come join us for an interesting, informative evening of armchair traveling and more.
This is a free event.
