Introduction to Permaculture

This course introduces a core set of principles that help us to design human living environments that are increasingly self-sufficient, while reducing our society's reliance on industrial systems of production and distribution that are fundamentally damaging to the planet's ecosystems. This design system, known as permaculture, covers basic agro-ecological design theory. We explore this in a hands-on way while creating edible landscapes, diverse gardens, and compost systems, and growing food on campus. This course also includes field trips and demonstrations. Required for ENV majors.
