The Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute
invites you to our 8th
July 23 - August 8, 2010

Steve Gabriel, Karryn Olson Ramanujan, Rafters Sass and Michael Burns

Our course equips students with the knowledge of whole systems and the  
principles, techniques, and challenges of permaculture as a system of  
sustainable design. Our learning community explores design topics such  
as soil regeneration, water conservation, building ponds and swales,  
managing wood lots, building natural and efficient homes, utilizing  
renewable energy, and designing gardens.

Our students follow a traditional permaculture curriculum with a bias  
toward the northeastern temperate climate. We teach though  
presentations, case studies, student design projects and hands-on  
design exercises. The course includes 84 hours of instruction plus a  
design practicum. Instruction is augmented by presentations from local  
experts, field trips, and games. This summer, learn to design for  
abundance in the beautiful Finger Lakes of New York. Our off-grid  
course is held at Cayuta Sun homestead (, just 15  
miles from Ithaca.

$1200 includes tuition, food, and camping
