    FYI FREE Oregon state university Permaculture course

    Begins April 23rd 2018
    Just in time for Earth Day, which in my book is everyday.
    If anyone else on GWE is interested in taking the course we can use this thread and the GWE Forum to collaborate.

    In this free, online course, you’ll learn about the process, ethics, and principles of permaculture while diving into climate-specific design elements through interactive technology, videos, graphics, and readings. Permaculture design is a method of landscape planning that can be applied to anything, from a home garden or farm to a city block or entire village. Permaculture uses design principles from nature itself and takes into account such things as how indigenous people used the land. This course is designed to benefit everyone regardless of learning style, time commitments, or available technology. Expect to spend between two to four hours each week on coursework.
    OBJECTIVES
    • Define what the permaculture design system is, as well as its ethics and principles.
    • Organize the order of the permaculture design process.
    • Diagram elements of watershed, sector, and zone maps.
    • Identify design elements appropriate for each climate.


    Course is offered by Oregon State University.

                I never got the confirmation email, but the "Lost password" link on the login page worked like a charm....go figure, I'll always find a new and unique way to break a normal process. I'm in now
