Shenandoah Permaculture Institute announces fall permaculture design certificate course.

Contributors

newspaperShenandoah Permaculture Institute is offering a full permaculture design certificate course in the Staunton area taking place over 4 weekends; Sept. 25-27, Oct. 17-18, Oct. 24-25, Nov. 7-8.  Course participants will learn to design sustainable human habitats using nature as a model as well as modern homesteading skills.

Permaculture is a design science that models itself on the patterns found in nature while applying them to human forms — from farms to economies and more.  Through 72-hours of workshops over four weekends, and using hands-on activities, field trips, presentations, conversations, collaboration, and a site-specific design project challenge, students will gain permaculture design credentials that are ready for real-world applications in both your personal life and business opportunities.

Shenandoah Permaculture Institute is an organization dedicated to teaching and research of permaculture in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
