What is Permaculture?
"An innovative framework for creating regenerative ways of living; a practical method for developing ecologically harmonious, ethical, human-scale and productive systems that can be used by anyone, anywhere."--Permaculture Magazine
In times like these we, at CMTN, think food security is a hot topic.
People everywhere are engaging in a local, land-based lifestyle and permaculture explores the practice and design of that land, recognizing uniqueness to every ecosystem.
Offered as part of our Associate Degree in Sustainable Communities, this is the first time we have offered Permaculture Design online. A 30 day course to help you build skills in cultivating and supporting land--perhaps for farms and food production.
