Permaculture Design I @ CMC in Carbondale
Jun 2 @ 8:00 am – 3:00 pm
Class Description:

Introduces the central principles of permaculture, an approach to applied design aimed at increasing health, vitality, and resilience in human/nature systems. Focusing on basic agro-ecological design theory, students will learn and apply permaculture principles to plan and/or construct projects such as edible landscapes, gardens, compost systems, water saving and optimizing landscape features, and energy saving systems. This course is the first in a two-course sequence that comprises the Permaculture Design Certificate program.

Hungry for change? Join the crew! Heal the Earth with your own hands, in concert with your community. Permaculture is a sustainable design system for creating regenerative human environments in which people create abundance of food, medicine and community by working with, rather than against, Nature. This class includes an overview of permaculture principles and lots of hands-on time working with living permaculture systems throughout the Roaring Fork Valley: Sustainable Settings, CRMPI, Aspen TREE, Basalt Food Forest, Rock Bottom Ranch & more. You will learn from a diversity of world-class practitioners (Brook LeVan, Stephanie Syson, Jerome Osentowski, Eden Vardy, Jason White and others) and apply permaculture techniques to design your very own system. Suitable farming or gardening sites will be provided if you do not have their own space to design. After completion of this course and SUS-351 (Permaculture Design II), you receive the internationally-recognized Permaculture Design Certificate: your ticket to working on organic farms anywhere in the world. This 45-hour class is open to community members and can also be applied toward our Bachelor of Arts degree in Sustainability Studies and/or its Sustainability Leadership Certificate. Class meets from 8a-3p on June 2-3, 8-10 and 15-17, including some classroom time at our Carbondale campus and field trips to locations in the RF Valley. All dates have been coordinated with SUS-321-GW01 (Leadership, Ethics & Social Responsibility) and the non-credit “Know Your Farmer Series” so you can take all classes with no conflicts. For questions about the class, contact Adrian Fielder at 970-947-8246. Textbook required.
