I’m very excited to be offering another round of the Permaculture Design Course at the Richmond Sharing Farm at Terra Nova, beginning May 25th 2012! This year I’ll be joined by the very talented Sara Dent as a co-instructor, as well as other skilled and engaging guest speakers and some very cool site visits.
The course involves once-per-month four-day sessions, Friday to Monday, in May, June, and July. With topics from ecological gardening, natural building, and soil and water conservation and remediation, to community food sovereignty, collaborative design strategies, and facilitation skills, this 72-hour course will combine classroom instruction with hands-on practica and real life design challenges on a community organic farm and orchard. We’ll focus a lot of our work on how to integrate Permaculture strategies into a production organic farm, which is an exciting edge of Permaculture design and a fascinating design challenge that I’m excited to be engaging with, alongside the talented Sharing Farm staff.
12-Day Course: May 25 – 28 June 22-25 July 27-30
Tuition: $1000, scholarships and payment plans are available.
