Join us for a two-week intensive design course facilitated by Toby Hemenway 
and Jude Hobbs at Highland Farm.
Permaculture is a whole-systems method of design that organizes ideas, 
strategies, and techniques from agriculture, appropriate technology, 
natural building, economics, and other disciplines into a pattern of 
mutually supportive relationships. By using principles from nature to 
thoughtfully integrate land, water, plants, people, animals, shelter, 
technologies, and community, Permaculture lets us design sustainable places 
to live.

WHERE: Across from Hood River in Underwood Washington. Located in the heart 
of the Columbia River Gorge in the inspirational complexity of both east 
and west Cascade ecosystems, Highland Farm is dedicated to landscape based 
education for a sustainable culture.
WHEN: August 19-31, 2005
COST: $1,400 includes local organic farm-fresh meals, covered camping, 
workshops and course materials, and a subscription to the Permaculture 
Activist. Certification is available upon completion of the two-week course.

Generous Scholarships are available to those interested in doing work exchange.
