Jerome Osentowski, director and founder of Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute (CRMPI), farms at 7,200 feet on a steep, rocky hillside in Colorado, incorporating deep, holistic permaculture design with practical common sense. The edible landscape nursery at CRMPI produces hardy fruit trees, fruit shrubs, grapevines, nitrogen-fixing trees and shrubs, and perennial edible, medicinal, and insectary herbaceous plants for landscapes, gardens, farms, and orchards in the Rockies and beyond (https://crmpi.org/). Join us for an insightful educational experience with Jerome Osentowski and learn about indoor and outdoor forest gardens and the opportunities for exploration and growth within your edible landscape.
A forager and permaculturist with roots in rural Nebraska, Jerome Osentowski lives in a passive solar home he built at 7200 feet above Colorado’s Roaring Fork Valley. Director and founder of Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute and a permaculture designer for thirty years, he has built five greenhouses for himself and scores of others for private clients and public schools in the Rockies and beyond. He makes his living from an intensively cultivated one acre of indoor and outdoor forest garden and plant nursery, which he uses as a backdrop for intensive permaculture and greenhouse design courses. Among his accomplishments is hosting the longest-running Permaculture Design Course in the world, now at twenty-nine years running. Jerome and his business partner and co-author, Michael Thompson, have also been instrumental in identifying, conserving, and propagating heritage fruit trees that have survived and borne crops for over a century in the harsh environment of the Roaring Fork Valley. Jerome’s explorations of sustainable systems and his travels for development projects have taken him to Baja, Nicaragua, Patagonia, Finland, Australia, and the Caribbean.
Following the presentation will be a 15 minutes of Q&A with the presenters and a program wrap-up.
All participants are invited to attend the 30 minute SWAAN Business Meeting led by Steve Price, Chair that will begin at the close of the education program.
