This weekend-long workshop is intended for the permaculture enthusiast who desires to understand more about the design and wider application of permaculture but has neither the time nor the finances to attend a full 72-hour course. It also fulfills the prerequisite to attend the week-long advanced permaculture course in Youth & Child Permaculture Education that begins the weekend after this intro, from June 15-21.
This weekend workshop is modeled after the introductory weekend of a full permaculture design course, with emphasis in the following areas:
- History of the agricultural society
- Foundations of permaculture
- Ethics & Principles that guide permaculture designs
- Assessment tools: Zone & Sector Analysis
- Observation & Pattern Recognition
- Needs & Resources Analyses
- Strategies for Applying Permaculture Design
While subjects such as urban gardening, natural building and other popular topic areas can be viewed through a permaculture lens, this workshop is explicitly geared to developing a deeper understanding of the design process itself, enabling participants to better apply permaculture in specific interest areas and individual endeavors.
We will meet from 10 AM to 5 PM Saturday 6/9 and Sunday 6/10.
Workshop tuition is $120. Participants who are also registered for the week-long course receive a $30 discount.
