PdC UpdAtE... WaTcH tHe vIdEo

We completed the 2nd weekend of our 6-weekend Permaculture Design Course this month and have organized into 5 design teams. Each team selected a challenging design project to tackle. It's exciting that even though these are student design projects they aren't just hypothetical. The design site hosts are all very actively interested in implementing the designs! We have a nice selection of projects - everything from public to personal and urban to rural. Permaculture design techniques can be applied everywhere and permaculture ethics can be applied to everything. So cool. Design projects include: Randolph Learning Center, a school for middle and highschool aged kids; a model site on AB-Tech campus; a Burton St. community project of Asheville GO; a single mom's Habitat for Humanity home, and a 7-acre horse farm. Here's one of our visionary PDC participants, Asheville City Councilmember Robin Cape, talking about Permaculture. video
