Event Description

2 full days, residential course

Location: Lanark Eco-Village, ON

Cost: $225, includes HST, vegetarian meals & camping space.

Permaculture design - the ethics, principles and design process - is based on living systems and draws upon indigenous knowledge. It can be applied to physical systems (eg. farms, gardens, cities) and to social systems (eg. organisational flows, business models, school curricula) anywhere. These courses focus on permaculture as DESIGN, which can be broadly applied to land-based, urban, social or economic systems.

This is a unique opportunity to take this course in an inspiring and beautiful, country setting at the Lanark Eco-Village!
