Andrew Millison brings nearly 20 years experience in designing and building permaculture projects to his teaching and wants to share that rich, real-world experience with his students. 

He has been studying, teaching and practicing permaculture since he took his first course in 1996. He began teaching permaculture at the college level in 2001 and has been an instructor at Oregon State University in the Horticulture Department since 2009.  Andrew currently teaches the Permaculture Design Course and the Advanced Permaculture Design Practicum at OSU both on campus and online.


Andrew first learned permaculture design  in the drylands of Arizona, where he studied for his undergraduate and master's degrees at Prescott College. His focus was on rainwater harvesting, greywater systems, and desert agriculture.  He started a permaculture landscape design and build company and also worked in an ecologically-based landscape architecture firm.  

In recent years, Andrew's focus has been more on broad scale farm planning, permaculture housing developments, and obtaining water rights.  In 2015, he founded  Permaculture Design International (PDI), a  collaborative design firm that works on large-scale global projects.
