As part of our efforts to promote regional self-reliance and sustainability, MPA+E hosts various educational activities such as permaculture workshops, film screenings and an annual seed swap. In 2006 we offered a two-week long Permaculture Designers Course and Eco-film Series with Andrew Jones that was well received. We are planning more workshops related to permaculture as well as specific topics dealing with organic gardening and green building. Information on upcoming workshops will be posted on this website and be emailed to interested individuals. If you'd like to join our mailing list, email us at
