Designing and Redesigning The City using Permaculture Principles ~ January 30th - February 2nd, 2014
This course is a marriage of the City Building Curriculum of Doreen Nelson and the Permaculture system of design delineated by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren. This is a concentrated program focused on designing and building a scale model of an ecologically based suburban/urban environment. We look deeply at urban social, cultural, political, economic, ecological systems through the eyes of Permaculture. Come prepared for some serious play and learning. This course is conducted primarily in an indoor setting and focuses on planning, drawing, drafting, and modeling. Location: Kinstone Academy of Applied Permaculture
Organization: Readings, narrated power point presentations, field skills, hands-on techniques and practice.
Course Length: 4 day intensive
