Summer Session

Self-Paced Online Learning: May 9 - 30, 2024

Through a series of videos, readings, and bi-weekly discussion sessions students will gain a foundational understanding of earth systems, the principles of permaculture, and basic design methodology. This material will lay the conceptual groundwork needed for the hands-on design training. 

Hands-on Training at OAEC: June 6 - 13, 2024

8-days: Thursday, June 6th at 10am through the following Thursday, June 13th at 12pm. Includes organic, vegetarian meals and shared accommodations.

The in-person portion of the course has two 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, and more. The design project will be at a local community or homeowner’s residential scale. There may be the opportunity to help implement the design project over the year.
