ENV 141 - Permaculture Design Science


4 credit(s)
Permaculture is about designing ecological human habitats and food production systems. It is a land use and community building movement, which strives for the harmonious integration of human dwellings, microclimate, annual and perennial plants, animals, soils, and water into stable, productive communities. The focus is not on these elements themselves, but rather on the relationships created among them by the way we place them in the landscape. This synergy is further enhanced by mimicking patterns found in nature. This course is designed to help students understand the basic principles of permaculture through classroom lectures and hands-on experience.

Core Requirement(s): Counts toward core requirements: Natural Sciences (2010-17 catalogs); Scientific Perspectives of the Natural World, Sustainability.
