Permaculture – the Art of Ecological Design

with Jesse Watson

Permaculture is a design system and set of techniques for creating resilient human habitats and healthy ecosystems. It is modeled on ecological principles and offers a design methodology for water, access, shelter, food production, 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 and perennial polycultures, water management, earthworks, pattern literacy, and workflow management. We will also visit a local demonstration site in the spring to see permaculture in action!
