Course Description: An introduction to the principles of Permaculture with applications to the home landscape and small-scale farming. Informal discussions of site evaluation, planning and evolution for efficient and effective landscaping based on the philosophy of caring for and working with the land.

We will learn to see the resource cycles available in our individual landscapes, and to look at how to integrate all aspects, for a healthy system.

Topics will include water harvesting and irrigation methods; planting for efficiency, all-season bounty, and pest management; community agriculture; natural building techniques; and much more.

Literature and reference materials will be available for local resources, plus a video presentation of The Global Gardener by B.C. Mollison and a slide presentation of alternative building design.
Thanks to local growers, we will share a vegetarian lunch to celebrate the bounty of the harvest.
