Something to ponder:

http://merrittlandhort.com/permaculture-merritt/

Merritt College is proud to be one of the first community colleges in the nation to offer a certificate in Permaculture Design. Our two-year program is able to provide its students with a firm understanding of sustainable design principles, while our 7.5 acre campus gives students the space to put those principles into practice.

Two semesters of Permaculture Design courses make up the core of the curriculum.

Courses meet once a week, and the half lecture and half practical format allows students ample time for hands-on experience in organic farming, natural building and water harvesting techniques.
