ETPRI is focussed on two main activities: practicing Permaculture ‘on the ground’ and teaching how Permaculture and other practices can contribute to a more abundant, and sustainable life.
When we say, on the ground, we mean it — or maybe ‘in the ground.’ Pictured here our Founder, David Bolt, and a couple of volunteers are digging a series of swales prior to filling them and the entire area with wood chips to create a growing environment that will soon be heavily organic in nature.
Classroom education is another major part of our effort to promote Permaculture and Sustainable Living. Here a group from the Cedar Bluff Home School Association are learning about solar energy.
Whether it’s classes, field work, Special Interest Groups, site tours, promoting networking, or in a dozen ways, ETPRI is dedicated to our mission of creating a working model of a cooperative, sustainable, self-reliant learning community built on Permaculture principles.
