Creating a Regenerative Neighborhood in Newburyport — The Design Process – June 9 at 7 PM

Tuesday, June 9th at 7 PM
Newburyport Public Library Program Room
94 State Street

Screen Shot 2015-05-20 at 8.19.27 AMHow do you approach the design of a vibrant, regenerative community on the site of a former salvage yard near the heart of densely-populated downtown Newburyport, a community offering affordable housing, greywater systems, “net zero” living, edible landscaping, a common house with a shared community kitchen and electric vehicles for in-town transportation, common gardening spaces and greenhouse, on-site energy generation and more?

Join us on Tuesday, June 9 at 7:00 PM in the Program Room of the Newburyport Public Library to hear Kailey Burke, Resident Farm Manager of the Hillside Center for Sustainable Living, and David Hall, partner at Hall and Moskow, and learn more about the developing plan and the design process. Kailey is a graduate of UMass Amherst’s Sustainable Food and Farming program and is a certified Permaculture Designer (PDC). Kailey will oversee that mulit-year installation of the site’s permaculture ecosystem.

This program is co-sponsored by Transition Newburyport and the North Shore Permaculture Group. For further information email or call 978-462-1308.
