Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is a harmonious integration of landscape and people — providing their food, energy, shelter, and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. We will cover the design principles of permaculture and how to apply these sustainable practices. No matter if you live in an urban apartment, suburban tract home, or on a multi-acre ranch, permaculture will help you live a more sustainable lifestyle.

Paul Racko is certified permaculture designer and offers consulting, design, project management & training though his firm Sierra Permaculture Design (sierrapermaculture.com)

Spring 2010 Cooperative Permaculture Design Course

I will be co-teaching a unique, cooperative Permaculture Design Course this coming spring at Ananda Dhiira near Grass Valley. Please join me for this life-changing experience!

2010 Permaculture design course in Grass Valley

Cooperative Permaculture Design Course

Sierra Nevada Foothills – Grass Valley, California
April 24 – May 5, 2010

Course Price Just Reduced: More Students = Lower Rate. Bring friends and save hundreds more!

This cooperative permaculture design certification course weaves together the creativity and energy of the participants and trainers in a 12-day exploration of how to design our world to work for all life.

Amongst the breathtaking scenery of the Sierra Nevada foothills of Northern California, we will share our collective insights, wisdom and experience about how to create sustainable, self-reliant communities, low maintenance foodscapes, healthy homes made from the earth, greywater systems, alternative economic systems and all the many other hallmark techniques of permaculture design.

Innovative Cooperative Model

This course is designed within an innovative cooperative framework which allows us to:

* Share in the work, quickly build community, and learn in a hands-on environment
* Invest in this special site and leave behind artifacts memorializing our time together and what we have learned.
* Reduced Rate! With additional students now signed up, the course rate has just been reduced to $1,000. By sharing the work and its fruits, we can offer the 12-day course for as low as $700. As the number of participants crosses certain thresholds, the economy of scale will reduce everyone’s course fee further, so tell your friends! Work trade discounts are available.

The practical sustainable living and cooperative working skills built during course are set in the context of the ethics and principles of permaculture design – the principles of natural systems.

Completion of the 12 day training results in the internationally standardized Permaculture Design Certificate.

Introductory Weekend Permaculture Course

The first two days of this course, April 24 and 25 will be offered as a stand-alone ‘Introduction to Permaculture course for those with weekend availability only.

The training is appropriate for beginners just learning of permaculture for the first time and experienced designers looking to apply what they have learned before on an inchoate site, for job seekers looking to invent the new economy and for those interested in the intersection of spirit, yoga and sustainable living.

An Abbreviated List of Course Topics:
– Ethics, Principles and Methods of Permaculture Design
– Translating Patterns into Designs
– Watershed Stewardship

– Food Forests and Perennial Vegetables
