This course will introduce students to the proper techniques necessary in order to build mutually beneficial relationships, both personally and professionally.
This initial course will focus on the basic principles of permaculture, and explain how they can be applied to urban environments, including using plants to help keep indoor air cleaner, and the use of green walls to reduce heating and cooling costs. It will also discuss how permaculture could be used in urban environments to help resolve the issue of disrupted food supplies in an emergency situation. I envision the class as a twenty to thirty minute talk, followed by questions and hands-on projects or brainstorming. Ideally, participants would gather in smaller groups and share ideas based on their living situation, then come back to the larger group and summarize their discussions. I would prefer a Saturday class time, during the afternoons, sometime between mid-October and mid-December.
