The course will cover a wide range of topics including:

- Principles and Ethics of Permaculture Design
-Site analysis and design, from the tropics to temperate regions
-Landscape master planning and microclimate design
-Reading the landscape and pattern recognition
-Resiliency building
-Design for climate change

The folks at Project Bona Fide have worked hard to create an excellent
site where you can see living examples of many of the techniques we
will address in the course. There will be a mix of classroom and
hands-on components so you can pack away tons of information and have a chance to put some of it into practice. This is sure to be an
incredibly valuable experience. If you're interested in
sustainability, resiliency building, or grassroots world changing this
is the course for you !
