Course: Intro to Permaculture

Jan 30 2010 - 4:00pm to Jan 31 2010 - 11:00pm

What is Permaculture?

Permaculture (*perm*anent - agri*culture*) is the conscious design and maintenance of agricultural ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. The philosophy is one that works with, rather than against nature and teaches that the only ethical decisions we can make are to take responsibility for our own existence and that of our children.
