Permaculture Design Cert Summer Session 2: July 30 - Aug 6

Summer Session 2

Self-paced Online Learning: July 4 - July 28

4 weeks, approximately 4 hours of course material per week. Optional online study sessions on Thursdays 5pm-7pm.

Orientation Meeting on Thursday, June 30th 2022 from 5-7 pm via Zoom

Through a series of videos, interactive lessons, and weekly study sessions students will gain a foundational understanding of earth systems, the principals of permaculture, and basic design methodology. This material will lay the important conceptual groundwork needed for the hands-on design training. 

Hands-on Training at OAEC: July 30 - Aug 6

            7-days - Saturday at 12:30 pm through the following Saturday at 12 pm.

The in-person portion of the course will have 2 main goals: to practice hands-on permaculture skills and to undertake a design project. We will use the OAEC site to learn some of the practical applications of permaculture such as conservation hydrology, earthworks, food forests, composting, natural building, renewable energy systems and more. Since we at OAEC practice ‘public permaculture’, the permaculture design project during the course will be on the site of a local community organization’s land-based project.
