The term "permaculture" was coined in 1978 by Australian Bill Mollison
a contraction of "permanent agriculture" or "permanent culture." A land
use system that works with nature's rhythms and patterns, permaculture
creates a stable society by utilizing resources in a sustainable way. 

By designing systems that are ecologically sound, economically viable,
socially responsible, permaculture offers a critical methodology for
rural and urban environments.  Accordingly, this course will focus on
ecological principles and appropriate technologies to gardening, food
production, shelter, water, energy, community development, alternative
economic systems, and many other aspects of contemporary living.
