I would like to first congratulate all the wonderful students who have completed the January 2012 72 hour permaculture design course held with Permaculture Miami. I am very pleased with all the results that have been accomplished by everyone and look forward to seeing what future endeavors are created because of it!
Graduating class of January-Feb 12th, 2012:
- Join us in Miami on a journey exploring ecological systems within and around you. Learning whole systems design in an urban setting gives access to sustainable living for a vast majority of our population here in Florida. This certified design course changes one’s state of being from living and thinking in isolation and scarcity to integration and abundance!
The permaculture journey begins with the Ethics and Design Principles and moves through the key domains required to create a sustainable culture. The spiral evolutionary path joins together these domains, initially at a personal and local level, and then proceeding to the collective and global level. Some of the specific fields, design systems and solutions that have been associated with the wider view of permaculture are what will be discussed and learned in the courses and workshops.
Students will develop the concept of permaculture through Group Discussion/Short videos/pictures/brain storming/Power point/Personal knowledge/ Demonstration/ Art/ music/Field visits/Questioning/ and Fun! All classes are taught in a form specific for adult learning. Each week we will be doing application and experiential processes covering the various topics. On completion of the design course all student receive a certificate of Completion for the 72-hour certified design course. Classes are designed to be fun, informative and inspiring! Join us! (topics, days and times are subject to change. At times, various teachers will be involved in class discussions.)
