Duration: 1 Day

Home-Scale PERMACULTURE
Design Certificate Course

Starting Sept. 14-15, 2013!!

Permaculture, a term originated by Australian ecologists, Bill Mollison and David Holmgren, means permanent culture. Using both ancient and modern knowledge, this methodology mimics universal patterns found in nature to create healthy human habitats. Guided by ethical behavior, Permaculture is a system of designing ecologically inspired landscapes that integrate home food production, energy, shelter and water. Participants will learn:

A step-by-step design process that taps your creative genius
Observation and site analysis to identify resource opportunities
Bioregional ecosystems, diversity and natural patterns
How to protect local watersheds and restore wildlife habitat
Water harvesting and management in the landscape; detoxification with rain gardens
Nutrient recycling with grey water and composting toilets
Identification of microclimates and zone planning for efficiency
Renewable energy systems and small-scale appropriate technology
Natural building and passive-solar home retrofitting
Fruit growing with forest gardens and plant guild design
Intensive no-till food gardening, soil regeneration and composting
How to cultivate forests, grains and cash crops
Integration of domestic animals and aquaculture
Social/economic strategies for urban/community scale food, energy and water security

Instructor: As a Permaculture designer, architect, and life-long organic gardener, Patty Ceglia is passionate about finding the ecological balance for productive potential of every site. She teaches at Wilson College, where her students practice hands-on strategies at the 160 acre Center for Sustainable Living.
