Permaculture is one lens with which to view some of these issues.Permaculture is defined as “design systems for sustainable human habitat: food, water, shelter, and energy”. The course will take an indepth look at how these systems interact and give participants a set of tools for designing and implementing sustainable practices in their lives and beyond.
