This Introduction to Permaculture Short Course will build a strong foundation for understanding and applying Permaculture ethics and design principles. You will have a framework and a process for approaching a residential property from a Permaculture perspective. You will gain confidence about taking strides on your own property, if applicable, and will dispel that feeling of not knowing "where to start."
