This summer Continuing Education at MCAD is offering a three part Permaculture Workshop Series. Participants will meet three Tuesday evenings in June and will be led by Dan Halsey, certified permaculture designer and expert in agro-ecosystems and edible forest gardens.
The Permaculture Workshop Series will introduce participants to permaculture principles, ethics, lifestyle and sustainable practices.
Register for each session for $25 each, or all three for $60. Follow this link for full course information and to register. First course is on June 7. Two remaining dates are June 14 and 21.
Permaculture is a designed process based on whole systems thinking and reflective patterns found in nature. Join us for an intensive introduction to permaculture principles, ethics, lifestyle, and sustainable practices. Students in this class will dig deep and discuss the needs, goals, and design options of an ecologically sustainable lifestyle. See actual working models of permaculture while defining your own adaptations for future resiliency. Presentations and discussions will show the skills that make for sustainable food production and resource independence. Philosophical issues, group dynamics, and economic, community, and personal transition will be among the challenging and engaging topics discussed. / Open to students ages 16 and above.
