Design your landscape working with nature.
Our ecological landscape is filled with possibilities. Locked in the
urban lot, fields, or broad acres may be the means to sustain an
abundant lifestyle for growing food, collecting fresh rain water for
drinking and reducing dependence on purchased resources. This series
will unlock the ecological capital that abounds within the landscape and
the neighborhood that surrounds it. Participants will be taught the
skills and foresight needed to assess, concept and design a property
into a perpetual harvest garden. Learn ecological landscape design
language and technique while using the permaculture design process to
create a ecologically resilient residence and harvest abundant
landscape. Small intensive design classes are limited to 20 participants each session.
Register early. Classes will be held weekly with on-line resources available for self paced instruction. See details below. Any module can be taken individually, however the
series is a progressive learning format building from all sessions.
The series will culminate with each participant completing a technical design ready for implementation. Make
sure you keep time available off-line to complete the
assignments. Students working on a personal design for their property
should purchase the site assessment workbook 2 weeks prior to the class.
Class 1- 4 are 3 hour lectures, demonstrations, and practice sessions with extensive homework assignments (4-5 hrs)
Class 5 is a LIVE design workshop finishing the concepts with plants, materials, and final critique.
