Darren will take an evening out of a concurrent 10-day training to bring Portland's VBC audience an overview of his miraculous work in landscapes all over the globe. He'll articulate the Regrarians Platform, an evolution of P.A. Yeoman's Scales of Permanence that is the basis of his workflow and decision-making for all of his projects. He'll share with us how he considers climate, geography, water, access, forestry, buildings, fences, soils, economy and energy.
