Hello,

Can someone please recommend a permaculture design course or school in the central part of North Carolina. I am reading the good books on this topic but am so fascinated by it that I would like to take a course or three.

Thanks,

Hello Jim,

Im interested in checking out the Research Triangle for potential relocation and found these places that may be close to you as well:
http://eco-institute.org/
http://610kirby-permaculture.org/610kirby-permaculture.org/Welcome.html
http://www.bountifulbackyards.com/

Im from Minneapolis, and particularly interested in relocating to a warmer climate that has decent water access, proximity to both mountains and ocean, with land that is affordable within an hour of a major metro area. The Triangle seems to hit all of those things so right now it has my top interest and looking to network in that area. From the climate data Ive looked at the winters seem very mild (in comparison to Minnesota) floating in the 40s, and only slightly hotter/muggy in the summers in the 90s. Where exactly in Central NC are you from?

The Central Carolina Community College out of Pittsboro N.C., offers a PDC, a course on Sustainable Agriculture, a course on Sustainable Technology, and a wild foraging class. There are also beekeeping classes, offered by a third party through the college. One of the key instructors (Mr. Fry) in the Sustainable Ag. program is a PDC graduate.

As a resident of the town and an alumni of the college, I'll absolutely vouch for the high quality of the instructors and the course material. Very hands on learning.
