Advanced Permaculture Design: Corvallis, Oregon HORT 499/599 Sept 7 – 24, 2010, Mon-Fri, 9am-4pm (with a 4 day field trip) @ Oregon University’s Urban Horticulture Center Cost: $900 (10% couples discount) Instructor: Andrew Millison, with guests Tom Ward, Larry Korn, Ish Shalom and others Field trips to Mountain Homestead, Cob Cottage Company and others Prerequisite: Permaculture Design Certificate or comparable introductory course This course is open to both enrolled OSU students and to the general public. We will dive deeper into Permaculture with an intensive design and implementation project, an extended field trip to Southern Oregon to meet with advanced teachers and see some of the most developed Permaculture sites in the state, and an array of other guest presenters from the best that our region has to offer. Some topics we will cover in depth from the Permaculture perspective are agroforestry and social forestry, seed breeding and production, farm-scale water catchment and distribution, natural building and village design, perennialpolyculture and forest garden design, and more. Our design project will be broad scale: the western agricultural portion of the Oregon State University campus, and we will utilize the planning and mapping resources of the University wherever possible.
