What does one do if they feel like it is important that they receive a college or university degree, but realize that it may not align with their definition of a true "education"? Does anyone know of any accredited colleges/universities, preferably outside of the United States, who offer majors and educations as closely aligned with permaculture ideals as possible?. Perhaps something along the lines as an awesome agroecology program?
You might also consider a degree in landscape architecture. You might have to bite your tongue during that process of education, but it would allow you to come out with a degree that would match favorably with a PDC that you can market yourself well with. The general population can get their head around landscape architecture a bit better than permaculture. I think Phil Williams in Pennsylvania is far down this path, in the sense that he came at things from the landscape architecture approach and migrated over to permaculture. Here's Phil's website: http://www.foodproduction101.com/
Awesome, thank you so much. I am deciding that I (may) go down the college route because of the grant and scholarship money I can receive just by saying I am a "college student", to then work on certain permaculture and gardening projects. However, I am a bit apprehensive that my schooling is going to get in the way of my education...so I am hoping to find programs that are in line with what I believe. I will look into it, thank you again.
I have been to the Evergreen campus. It was a long time ago on a field trip in high school. maybe 20 years ago? the campus was very nice though and from what I remember it seemed like a really cool place to go to school. I have had friends that went there who liked it a lot.
Hoo hoo hoo! Looks like we got a live one! Here, wave this tiny ad at it:
