Permaculture As A Foundation for Ecologically-Respons­ible Development

The Master of Arts in Sustainability Studies Program at Ramapo College of New Jersey invites you to a lecture by:

Andrew Faust, Center For Bioregional Living

The lecture will take place in Friends Hall, at the Ramapo Campus in Mahwah, NJ.

The field of Permaculture offers an approach for successfully balancing and simultaneously achieving human needs and ecological integrity. Within bioregions, permaculture design provides a path for how to heal ourselves while we heal the land. This approach to addressing our economic and environmental problems is hardly complex or unreachable; rather it is merely ecological common sense. It entails meeting our needs for food, fuel, shelter and fiber in synergistic ways that strengthen community economies while reconnecting people with their beauty and biology. By cooperating regionally and designing ecologically, we have the potential to create and insure healthy and secure economies, landscapes and communities that will benefit and enrich for generations to come! 

In his two decades in the field, Andrew Faust has become one of the major forces in permaculture practice and training in North America. He has lived rurally off grid in a permaculture inspired homestead including a 1600 sq ft strawbale house, honed his skills in urban landscape after moving to Brooklyn and is currently developing The Center for Bioregional Living in Ellenville, NY. Faust is a principle Permaculture Certification trainer in the New York region.
