Want to learn more about Permaculture and how you can retorfit your home and community to recuce your carbon footprint and adapt to a changing climate?  Klamath Knot Permaculture will host an extended Permaculture Design Course that will draw on a wide array of sites and instructors, from the North Coast to the interior Klamath River region. The course meets for six sessions, offering an in-depth learning experience through the seasons, with a combination of residential weekends at Sandy Bar Ranch, a 20-year-old established Permaculture site, and daylong sessions in the Arcata/Eureka area. Upon completion, participants will receive a Permaculture Design Certificate and gain skills in a broad array of subjects such as organic gardening, integrated pest management, natural building, appropriate technology, traditional ecological knowledge, mycology, animal husbandry, water harvesting and conservation, design processes, and more. This extended course is for aspiring or experienced gardeners, farmers, community organizers, land planners, builders and any active, engaged citizen seeking positive change.

Permaculture is the design and creation of sustainable human habitats and food production systems. It is a design method that has been applied worldwide at every level, from homesteading and agriculture to community planning and national policy. Permaculture offers tangible solutions to the many pressing ecological issues of our time, such as how to sustainably meet the basic needs of food, energy and shelter, to how to vitalize our communities, and restore our watersheds.   Permaculture is both a land use ethic and community building movement, which strives for the harmonious integration of human dwellings, energy systems, micro-climate, annual and perennial plants, animals, soils, and water into stable, productive communities.
