An introduction to Permaculture Design
October 8-10, 1999 at Ojai Foundation, Ojai CA

Permaculture is an elegant integration of designs to sustainably provide for 
human needs. These designs are based on nature’s patterns and energy flows. 
Participants will gain an understanding of this natural design approach 
through presentations, discussions, site observation and hands-on practice. 

The workshop begins Friday evening with a discussion and slide show overview 
of permaculture design principles. Saturday, we will explore ways to apply 
permaculture design to improve our soil fertility, water, energy, and food 
systems. Sunday activities involve a walkabout examinations of these designs 
on the Ojai Foundation’s diverse grounds and settings. The weekend experience 
will conclude with participants developing community-based networking 
strategies for continuing to help each other apply this practice in our 
evolving lifestyles.

Cost: $245 (includes dinner Friday, 3 meals each day, and on-site lodging) 
a limited number of $50 work scholarships/camping discounts are available 

To register, or for more info/questions, please contact the Ojai Foundation,
