Visit an emerging Permaculture design project and sustainable farm. Learn how John and Rhonda Flatberg have built and live with their off-grid solar powered home.

Tour two growing domes where John and Rhonda raise most of their food year round. Walk along the “heart” waters of the Virgin River through a wetland restoration project with ponds and peat fen. Learn about wild edible and medicinal plants and sample a wild-crafted herb tea.
See a farm design which integrates wild habitat with intensive agriculture while building topsoil.

Bring hiking shoes that may get wet, drinking water, and pack a lunch if desired. Light refreshments will be served. Questions will be welcomed as you learn about permaculture basics, food forests, alley cropping on swales, holistic animal systems and building a more sustainable world locally.

Meet at 9:30 AM at the Earthfest Information Table, Kane County Office of Tourism, 78 South 100 East, Kanab, to carpool to this event. Drive north from Kanab on US Highway 89 past Glendale, to a road about ½ mile north of a Hwy rest area. Turn left at the Bryce/Zion Campground and proceed to the end of the road. When you come to the white Dome house—you have arrived. Park along the road. Allow 45 minutes driving time from Kanab.
