Course Description

A holistic approach to sustainable development begins with land use  
and community design. This is a two week intensive Permaculture Design  
Certification Course that will be hosted on the beautiful site of the  
newly forming Laytonville Ecovillage in Mendocino county of Northern  
California. This course will immerse participants in the design system  
of Permaculture to create and maximize the beneficial relationships  
between our natural resources, our daily needs, and the regeneration  
the Earth. The course will integrate the theory of sustainable living  
with social permaculture through hands-on, real experience. Course  
participants will experience living in community and contributing to  
the design and development of a real Eco-Village project lead by an  
amazing cast of teachers and special guests in a fun and supportive  
community learning environment.

Site Details: Laytonville Eco-Village

The course is being held on an emerging Eco-Village development  
project on a ten acre, beautifully forested property about a mile  
outside of Laytonville, California. Laytonville is a small, rural town  
in Northern Mendocino County located right off Highway 101, about a  
three-hour drive from San Francisco. The property is zoned for  
subdividing and is in the process of being subdivided into five two- 
acre parcels that together will consist of the EcoVillage. Existing  
infrastructure on-site includes a two-story, two-unit farmhouse that’s  
about 65 years old, a barn with loft, a carport, and storage  
buildings. The vision of the Ecovillage is to develop the land and  
homes with community and sustainability as the core values. All of the  
models of ecological design, permaculture, green building, etc. will  
be applied to the fullest extent possible. Lots are available to  
people who agree to a common vision, to community, and to working with  
a set of guidelines that are developed by the community. Individual  
lots will thus fit into a “commons” wherein they co-create and agree  
to a set of sustainable and community parameters.
