 Ventura Bicycle Union logo by Winston BraunYes Sunday in the United States is Flag Day and you have to choose where to fly your flag. Locally some of these choices are will it be food or wine, music or art on June 14.

Will you get your hands dirty with Devin Slavin at the Grow Food Party Crew’s permaculture workshop June 14?

Or will you stain your teeth red with fabulous wines at the Ojai Wine Fest from 12-5pm:ojai wine festival poster

The Ojai Wine Festival is a Charity Event

The Ojai Wine Festival is the major fund-raiser for the

Rotary Club of Ojai-West

Of course there are other options: the Ojai Music Festival (OMF 6/12 review & Flag Day dilemna: hear music, taste wine, grow food, or make art? Part 1 no alcohol allowed although people sneak it in).

OR make art by silk screening t-shirts with the Ventura Bicyclists Union from 10:30-2:30 which I am hosting! Of course we will have wine and be playing music and talking about gardening and food coops so maybe you or I can have it all by making art! Comment below or email me for more details!

An Introduction to Permaculture Design

Sunday, June 14 – 11AM-5PM – Ventura, CA – $20

Have you been searching for tools to create a world in which we thrive in the face of all challenges, now and in the future?

Permaculture is an integrative design system that weaves all aspects of living into a synergistic web of relationship – energy, economy, ecology, agriculture, buildings, community, culture and so on. It calls upon patterns of nature, wisdom of the ancestors, and the cutting edge of science & technology to arrive at solutions for any problem that we face.

Join us and step into the Designer’s Mind to create the world you want to live in.
