Permaculture – the Art of Ecological Design

Permaculture is a design system and set of techniques for creating resilient human habitats and healthy ecosystems. It is modeled on ecological principles and takes into account food production, shelter, energy, water, wellness, community, culture and economics. In this abbreviated course students will gain a strong foundation for applying permaculture ethics and design principles. We will cover topics including: a permaculture design process, forest gardens & perennial polycultures, water management, earthworks, pattern literacy, and garden management. We can also visit a local demonstration site in the Spring to see permaculture in action!
