Great Lakes Permaculture Design Collaborative

This year, William Faith (Chicago), Milton Dixon (Ann Arbor) and myself teamed up to explore a new model of teaching permaculture design. We use reading and questions beforehand, along with video instruction, and in-class, hands-on work to emphasize the design process and how to implement permaculture in the students’ lives.

With weekend five coming up in August, the students’ understanding of permaculture and the design process–and especially their passion for creative ways to implement permaculture in their lives is proving this to be a successful model. We plan to repeat the course in Ann Arbor in 2017.
