Course Detail: NC-INTRO_PERM - Introduction to Permaculture

Permaculture is a set of design principles centered on natural systems thinking. Permaculture design simulates the patterns and resilient features observed in natural ecosystems. It uses these principles in a growing number of fields from regenerative agriculture, rewilding, and community resilience.

In this course, students will learn and begin to apply the fundamental principles of permaculture. They will begin by exploring their current worldview of how they look at such permaculture elements as agriculture and landscape design, then learn how trained permaculturalists look at these fields via permaculture ethics and design principles.

Class includes a field experience with a discussion on plant succession followed by hands-on observational walk. We will then end up at one of our campus garden sites where we have hands-on demonstrations of tools and planting techniques.
