PERMACULTURE PROGRAM | Structural, Agricultural, and Landscaping.
What is Permaculture?
Permaculture comes from “permanent culture” and the word refers to a set of design principles developed by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren. Permaculture is a design philosophy encompassing diverse but inter-related fields, including gardening/horticulture, architecture, ecology, community design, and systems theory. Our courses are taught in fun, comprehensive hands-on workshops and are designed per age group. The students will learn the ethics, principles and practices of “permanent culture,” by exploring topics such as organic gardening, landscaping, mulching, natural building, forest farming, water retention and regeneration, erosion control, community processes. According to renowned scientist and environmental activist David Suzuki, "What permaculturists are doing is the most important activity that any group is doing on the planet. And the good news is you can start right now - start at your nose, your room, your back doorstep...start observing and cooperating with nature."
