Off-Grid EcoVillage Farmsteading    Thu Feb 23, 2017, Ottawa, ON

Transition Ottawa Meet-Up

Off-Grid EcoVillage Farmsteading
with Rene Suarez

Thursday, February 23, 7-9 pm Room 101 Jack Purcell Centre, 320 Jack Purcell Ln (near Elgin & Gladstone, Ottawa

Rene Suarez is travelling from Toronto to share with us his experience starting an off-grid ecovillage/farmstead, part of a new Ecovillage Incubator program. At this meet up, we will explore tools and frameworks and apply them to three startup scenarios in Ontario, including highlights from Bee City Canada & Skillseed’s own pollinator habitat/food forest/off-grid homestead near Orangeville, started in 2016, which is planning to grow 3 more acres of Food Forest and launch a group CSA market garden in 2017. This presentation includes elements of permaculture, green building, upcycling, living off-grid, living in community, native ecology, pollinator habitats & education, holistic lifestyle, and social enterprise.

Rene Suarez lived and worked in Auroville, India and other intentional communities. He carries a wide and deep knowledge - some of you may remember his well-attended presentations on Ecovillages in 2015.
