Permaculture Design Courses
will be held near Roanoke, Virginia

Fundamentals of Permaculture Design
May 26 - June 3, 2006
Permaculture Design Practicum
July 21 - 29, 2006

"Permanent agriculture" or "permanent culture," a term coined by Australians David Holmgren and Bill Mollison in the 1970s, describes a design system for creating human settlements that function in harmony with nature. Incorporating traditional knowledge, modern science, and the ecological patterns of the living world, permaculture design is applicable to farms, gardens, organizations, housing developments, towns and villages, or city neighborhoods.

Instructors: Peter Bane is the publisher of Permaculture Activist. Since 1992 Peter has taught permaculture to over 700 students in locales from Canada to Patagonia. Last year he gave the closing keynote presentation to the 7th International Permaculture Convergence in Croatia.
Keith Johnson was Director of Sonoma (California) Permaculture until 1997. For the past 10 years he has managed a design, consulting, and construction company specializing in masonry, rock walls, waterfalls, earth repair, food forestry, and runoff management.
Dr. Lee Barnes received a Ph.D. in Environmental Horticulture from the University of Florida and has served as an agricultural extension agent for the state of North Carolina. He is a land stewardship consultant and a dowser who is passionate about bioregional and environmental education in the Southern Appalachians. 
Dave ONeill is the owner and operator of Radical Roots Community Farm and the Director of the Arboretum at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Dave teaches permaculture design and organic gardening classes at Blue Ridge Community College and has experience in landscape design.
