Oregon's Permaculture Networking Site in Corvallis, OR
Detailed Information and Registration:
This online Permaculture Design Certificate Course focusses on the Permaculture design system: it's fundamental tools and strategies that can be applied at scales from the home garden to city block to village to farm. Although rooted in horticulture and agriculture, Permaculture design is interdisciplinary, touching on a wide range of subjects including regional planning, ecology, animal husbandry, appropriate technology, architecture, and international development.
This certificate course takes students on a journey to design the site of their choice, where the curriculum and assignments all build towards the creation of an integrated site design.
The course consists of narrated slide shows by experienced Permaculture instructors, educational video tours with knowledgable guides, and interactive assignments, working towards the completion of a Permaculture site design.
Students present their work on individual blogs, which are visible for other students to comment on, and through discussion boards the community of learning is encouraged.
This is a non-credit course offered through Oregon State University's Professional and Non-Credit Education. The student receives a Permaculture Design Course Certificate, but without registering for credit with OSU.
