The first 6.5 week long course and provides an opportunity for you to
build your knowledge about permaculture and ecological design.
Participants will explore the content through videos, readings, and
activities and complete portions of a design for a site of their choosing.
While the course is online, the format is designed for consistent
interaction between instructors and students through forums and review of
assignments. Readings and presentations will be directly applied through
hands-on activities students will engage with at home.
There are two additional permaculture design courses:
- Permaculture Design: Ecosystem Mimicry:
January 16 to March 2, 2017
- Permaculture Design: Design Practicum:*
March 13 to April 6, 2017
*Prerequisite: ³Fundamentals of Ecological Design² or ³Ecosystem Mimicry"
Completion of a single class gives students a certificate of completion
from the Horticulture and continuing education units.
Completion of all three courses gives students the portfolio necessary to
apply for an internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certificate
though the Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute
Space is limited to 15 participants. Registration opens about six weeks
before each course begins. Fee is $675 paid via credit card at sign up.
