The Rebel Farmer Returns — Sepp Holzer to Offer Permaculture Programs in the Ann Arbor Area
World-renowned farmer and permaculture master Sepp Holzer visits SE Michigan this April for an incredible three-day, hands-on installation course, as well as a public lecture at the University of Michigan.
Sepp Holzer has pioneered the use of ecological farming and permaculture throughout the world, practices that help to counter modern agricultural crises such as drought, pesticide pollution, loss of biodiversity and soil erosion. Sepp began farming this way in Austria in the 1960s after being unsuccessful with conventional agriculture methods. He is known as the "rebel farmer" because he persisted in these practices despite being fined and even threatened with prison. His working farm in the Austrian Alps receives thousands of students and visitors each year.
The events this April, 2013 include:
3-day installation course, April 2nd – 4th (in Ann Arbor, Highland Park and Ypsilanti) — space for 40 registered participants only. Includes 3 days of hands-on learning plus a private dinner and movie with Sepp on Wednesday, April 3rd.
Public lecture by Sepp at The Rackham Amphitheatre, University of Michigan (Rackham Building, 4th floor), Tuesday, April 2nd, 6:30 – 9:00 pm — open to the public
