In addition to completing a group design project, you will learn an abundance of earth care techniques–managing water, building healthy soil, designing and planting food forests, integrating livestock, and much more. You will also get an introduction to natural building and social permaculture. This course is designed to showcase applications of permaculture on many scales, from urban settings to farms. Expect to spend a few hours outside of class working on your design project.
