:: Advanced Permaculture Mapping Course ::

Help steward the creation of Atlan Ecovillage on 152 beautiful acres!
May 28-31, 2015
Working closely with the Atlan community we will be offering an ongoing advanced design series to map the land, help craft the vision and goals with the people who live and work there, create the site master plan, teach hands-on skills intensives, and much more. 
We invite you to be an early permaculture team helping to launch this vision.  We need working models of resilient community and this one will be a shining star.  We look forward to meeting you, learning with you, and designing with you.

The Land:
Atlan community has landed on 152 acres in northwestern White Salmon, Washington.  The land of Atlan is nestled in the Buck Creek and Mill Creek watersheds flowing into the exquisite and recently un-dammed White Salmon River. Diverse micro-climates and beautiful southern slopes overlook the scenic Columbia River Gorge with year round streams.  There are stands of second growth Douglas fir, riparian transition zones, and oak savannah, providing a rich variety of flora and fauna.
The Community:
In 2007, Atlan emerged from spontaneous conversations about the need and passion for creating conscious land based community.  We came together through meetings and celebrations and our resonance and dedication to the process continued to evolve. This group of 7 founding members formed ATLAN LLC (Atlan Living Learning Center) in August 2010. In the time since we have deepened our connections with local community, building resonance through working on the land, gardening together, and holding quarterly Councils and Seasonal Celebrations.
Atlan is a living and learning ecovillage dedicated to the artful co-creation of healthy living systems celebrating the connectedness and diversity of all Life.
Atlan provides sanctuary for the creation of sustainable culture through the holistic integration of healing, art, and design. Our ecovillage demonstrates permaculture and regenerative principles while engaging a network of resonant communities.
