About the event

This class provides the traditional permaculture design course curriculum. We will cover the principles of permaculture for both urban & rural applications and sustainable human settlements. Landscape analysis, ecological planning & design methods, organic food production, food security, natural soil improvement, integrated animal systems, water harvesting, conservation and management, forest gardening, techniques and design strategies are highlighted in this class. Our field trips will feature living examples of permaculture in the greater Portland area including home scale, broad acre, neighborhood scale, and community. There will be hands-on projects most days in class on campus. Students will complete a conceptual design project in a group as their final project for the class. Upon completion of this course students will be awarded a Permaculture Design Certificate through the Cascadia Permaculture Institute. Audit available.

Registration opens on May 20, 2019.
