PERMACULTURE DESIGN CERTIFICATION COURSE
AT WORLD STEWARD'S HIGHLAND FARM
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
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,
