Permaculture: An exploration of the landscape in Nea Makri, Sunday September 27th
Our guide: Mark Krawczyk
Time and place:
11:00 am, Sunday, September 27th at the foyer of the Aliki movie theatre in the Athletic and Cultural Park of Nea Makri.
It is expected to have light clouds and some wind tomorrow.
For the tour in the area of the ex-American military base and the archaeological site of Brexiza make provisions to carry with you a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen, light clothing (including a sweater) and walking shoes, as well as water. This is an easy hiking activity suitable for everyone but during the tour there is no place to sit other than on the ground. We should be back by 1:00 for discussion and whatever seems appropriate at the time!...
Join us for a tour through the basics of permaculture design and for a rare reading of the landscape – By permaculture, still little known as a term in Greece, we refer to a holistic design system with origins in Australia, that helps us create environments that meet human needs while improving the ecosystem health. After an overview of the practice, principles and pursuit of permaculture ('permanent agriculture' that builds 'permanent culture') join us to assess a neglected and abused urban landscape generating design solutions that restore and regenerate it for the good of humans and all beings.

How to get there:
If coming by public transport (buses going to Marathon, Grammatiko and Ag. Marina all make stops there) the ex-military American base site is also a bus stop, so just notify that this is where you want to get off. From there the Aliki movie theater is a 5’ walk inside the Athletic and Cultural center of Nea Makri.
If coming by car from Marathon avenue driving towards Marathon, about 150 m after the Dionysos intersection and just after the fire station you need to slow down and turn right into the Athletic and Cultural center of Nea Makri. Park and walk to the movie theater.
