Permaculture 101: Cultivating Ecological Lives and Landscapes with Permaculture
Permaculture offers a design system to help meet our needs in our own backyards while at the same time working to revitalize them. Rooted in a set of adaptive principles, permaculture thinking encourages us to look at the world through a new lens where problems become solutions embedded in endless possibilities that help guide our decision-making. Learn about the fundamentals of permaculture design through design case studies, applied techniques, and anecdotes, and discover the ways this applied science can help you create diverse, productive, resilient landscapes and cultivate a vision of an ecological culture.
The art of ecological design is a conversation between humans and landscape. In this day-long intensive, learn how to facilitate that conversation in a real world setting. Using the lens of permaculture, we'll analyze and assess our host landscape, taking note of the resources, opportunities, challenges, and ecological realities it presents. Then synthesize this information, working to tell the 'story of the site' - which ultimately serves as the foundational framework for permaculture design.
