Taken together, these two courses (5 credit total) fulfill the requirements for an internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certification Course. Part two, "Practicum” will build on the foundations, skills, and perspectives developed during “Fundamentals,” and bring them into practical application. The Practicum consists of facilitating a collaborative design by the students as a group, and culminates with students presenting their own in depth designs for a site of their choosing. Skills and techniques for “reading the landscape,” developing site-responsive design, and representing interpretations and plans through visual maps and public presentations are developed. You must be co-enrolled with PSS 196 Permaculture Fundamentals. Students enrolled in Part II, Permaculture Design Practicum (PSS/ENVS 156) must have successfully completed Part I, Permaculture Fundamentals (PSS 195 or 196). No students will be allowed into Part II without previously completing Part I, ideally in the same semester.
