This course is an exciting opportunity to learn Permaculture Design in an urban environment with like-minded individuals in your community. St. Louis is full of potential, as well as amazing work happening right now, and we uncover what it looks like to create a sustainable and equitable city through group design projects, local and global showcases, and hands-on practice on the land—all in conjunction with the paradigm-changing Permaculture Design Course curriculum through renowned Permaculture Institute instructorship.
Ample opportunities to experience diverse applications of Permaculture in action are offered as part of this course, from intensive food production gardens, edible forest gardens, rainwater harvesting systems, soil creation, and network building. We will visit projects like EarthDance Organic Farm School in Ferguson, MO and engage with Confluence Farms, a 240 acre farm and forest under development, as our primary course location.
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 the Permaculture Institute, Inc. founded by Bill Mollison and Scott Pittman.
