This course is an exciting opportunity to learn Permaculture Design in a highly urban environment with like-minded individuals. St. Louis, as all cities, are full of potential, as well as amazing work happening right now, and we uncover what it looks like to create a sustainable, stable, and equitable city through group design projects, local and global showcases, and hands-on practice in established urban farms—all in conjunction with the paradigm-changing Permaculture Design Course curriculum with renowned Permaculture Institute instructorship.
Ample opportunities to experience Permaculture in action are offered as part of this course from farmers’ market production gardens, edible forest gardens, rainwater harvesting systems, urban soil building, placemaking installations, and community building.
Class material is presented through discussion, slideshow, hands-on skill building, touring Permaculture sites, and interactive activities.
Participants receive an internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certificate from Permaculture Institute founded by Bill Mollison and Scott Pittman. The course syllabus can be found here.
