creating a sustainable future!

The A to Z of Sustainability!  A more fun or informative course would 
be hard to find. Our text book, Permaculture: A Designer's Manual, by

Building Techniques, Backyard Food-Forests, Fossil-less Fuels, 
Alternative Energy, Industrial Ecology, Patterns of Human Dynamics &

The Design Course curriculum focus is mainly lecture and the all 
important theory behind the practice of Permaculture Design -with an 
emphasis on Design.  Students will be responsible for a final student 
Design Presentation.  Additional seminars will be available for 
students interested in hands-on training; Design Exercises,
