Event Description

Starting May 25 2012, a Permaculture Design Certificate course with a
hands-on focus on Permaculture strategies for small organic farms. Hosted
by the Richmond Sharing Farm, a community farm and orchard project at the
beautiful Terra Nova heritage farm site, with ocean on one side and the
Fraser River on the other side, in West Richmond.

Permaculture is applying ecological principles to human challenges, meeting
our needs in ways that leave our environment and our communities healthier,
more abundant, and more resilient than we found them. With topics from
ecological gardening, Permaculture for small farms, and natural building to
community food sovereignty, urban retrofitting, and soil and water
conservation and remediation, this 72-hour course will combine classroom
instruction with hands-on practica and real life design challenges on a
working organic farm and community orchard.

12-Day Course: May 25 - 28 June 22-25 July 27-30
Tuition: $1000, scholarships and payment plans are available.
