Description: This course will provide a toolbox of strategies for design on the personal, professional and community level. Students will learn about the fundamental systems that support NYC and gain hands-on experience at a model ecological center in Park Slope, Brooklyn. The greater NYC community will be examined on the local and global level and our culture’s sustainability will be compared to others around the world. This course embraces both modern technologies and ancient traditions, utilizing the techniques that bring satisfaction to our lives and are economical in the truest sense of the word. Permaculture provides the keys to right livelihood and positive action for a lifetime.
Permaculture is more than just good gardening. It is a lifelong approach to analysis, action and social structures that result in better relationships, more functional systems and a clearer understanding of everything necessary for human communities to thrive.
