Permaculture is the study and practice of the way human beings can participate in the creation of ethical and ecological support systems. This course will present a whole systems design approach that integrates natural and built communities in the landscapes that surround us. The course is designed to introduce students to the ethics, principles and practice of permaculture design through collaboration on real-world projects with an eye towards repairing, restoring and regenerating human ecosystems. Students who complete the course receive the “Permaculture Design Certificate,” a certificate of completion recognized by the Permaculture Institute USA.
