We had a great time at this course with 25 students from the local community engaging with permaculture ideas for their region.  We think this is a fabulous offering for isolated communities who would like to bring teachers to their locale, focus on their own eco-region and bring together their community.  
Pre-registration required.

If you are curious about what permaculture is and not sure about taking the whole 12 day Design course, this is a great taste of what Siskiyou Permaculture has to offer.

Drawing on scientific and indigenous knowledge, permaculture strives to design a new culture that can persist on planet earth in balance with nature and regenerate our ecosystems.    This land use and community building movement focuses on designing ecological human habitats and food production systems that provide for human needs while regenerating local ecosystems.  

Permaculture topics include homestead and community design, appropriate technology, water, soils, closing waste and resource loops, ecological relationships, forestry, natural building, food growing and building new culture.  We will discuss permaculture principles and ethics, design methodologies, exemplary books, and the state of the world from a permaculture perspective.  

This one day workshop is for those who have not had the opportunity to take the full Permaculture Design Course and want to find out about this hopeful but realistic approach to designing our future.
