Kaw Permaculture and the Kansas Permaculture Institute’s are proud to present their spring Permaculture Design Certification Course,“Re-skilling for the Future: A Course in Permaculture Ethics, Principles and Design”
Do not miss this affordable opportunity to begin re-skilling for the transition to a more sustainable lifestyle.
Our course begins Thursday evening, February 23 and continues each Thursday evening and Saturday afternoon through May 20 at the Dreher 4H Building 2110 Harper Ave. Lawrence, KS.
Learn how the sustainability movement known as permaculture promises to create an ecologically sound and economically viable system which neither pollutes nor exploits our planet.
The first part of this course consists of 48 hours of lecture, video and field work covering topics including food security, permaculture ethics, ecological principles, system design, sustainable soils, food production, earth works, construction of human habitats, and invisible structures. The second part of the course consists of four, 6 hour practicum sessions that emphasize hands-on experience in land assessment, planning, and system design and includes developing skills in agroforesty management, creating plant guilds, using design charettes, constructing earthworks and using sustainable building technology. Together, both segments of this curriculum complete the 72+ hour requirement for the international certification in Permaculture Design (PDC) that will be awarded through the Kansas Permaculture Institute.
Your training will consist of a dynamic mixture of lectures, video screenings of leading experts who demonstrate application of permaculture design principles, and visits to local area urban sites and farms engaged in permaculture practice. Lecture, discussion and hands-on sessions will include the following:
