Alabama Permaculture is hosting it's first annual Sustainable Saturdays: Spring permaculture design course. The course runs Saturdays, April-June.

This Course Will Cover:

Permaculture ethics and principles, design methods, map reading and making, local ecosystems, animal husbandry, forms of eco-gardening and farming, zone and sector analysis, edible food forest gardens, homesteading, water in landscape, regenerating soils, design with climates and microclimates, earthworks, plants in Permaculture, forests, windbreaks, agroforestry, market gardening, patterns in nature, designing for mitigating disasters, integrated pest management, aquaculture and aquaponics, and much more!

This course is perfect for anyone interested in prepping, self-reliance, or off-grid living.

A permaculture design course is for Everyone

By applying the basic Permaculture design principles, methods, strategies and techniques covered in this course, people can learn how to better provide for their basic needs, using local resources in cost effective, culturally appropriate, healthy and environmentally friendly ways.

This course is conveniently held on weekends, so as to accomodate individuals that are unable to attend the convention two week courses. As such, we offer this permaculture design course four times a year: Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter.

The course is designed from a learn-by-doing perspective. I try to keep lectures to a minimum, and focus on class discussion and activities.

Projects May Include:

Residential Landscapes
Edible Landscapes
Commercial Developments
Farm Design
Nursery Design
Co-housing and Ecovillages
School and Public Projects
Ponds and Aquaculture
Stone Masonry and Hardscapes
Drainage Management and Erosion Control
