Learn a land use design method to improve home scale food and forest production, to conserve resources, and save money.
Study basic ecological principles and methods and use them to solve problems on your own home and landscape.
We will meet over a weekend and then once a week to discuss the principles and techniques of permaculture and ecology that help us make better choices for our land, families, and communities.
Class work will include a self-selected design project. You can design your own backyard, garden space, vacant lot, field, forest, or even an entire neighborhood. Examples and applications will be presented in both an urban and rural context.
We are offering two courses beginning February 2nd, 2013
February 9 & 16, March 9 and 16, April 6 and 13
