Permaculture is an ecological design science based on the resilient patterns found in nature. It is a vision of what we would rather see in the world and how to achieve it in a step by step manner. The ethics, tools and techniques of Permaculture are focused on creating vibrant bioregional cultures and economies providing long term comfort and security for our families, communities and future generations.
Center for Bioregional Living courses educate and inform our students to create true health, wealth and regional self-sufficiency through cooperating with nature. We offer permaculture design courses and consultation services, inspiring hundreds of graduates in the northeast, and New York’s Five Boroughs. With over 20 years of experience in design for a wide range of clients, we are your source for permaculture design education and consultation.

Permaculture for Home and Garden with Andrew Faust
252 Prospect Street, Plainfield, MA 01070 | April 20, 2014 - 5:00pm - April 25, 2014 - 3:00pm
Permaculture is a branch of environmental design that develops self-maintained systems modeled on natural ecosystems. It helps us recognize principles by which living systems operate and live in a sustainable way with the earth. These principles and the imagery of permaculture provide rich material for movement. In this workshop, we will learn about and have a modest hands-on experience with permaculture, then develop improvisational scores and movement structures based on what we learn. Our scores will involve concepts of relationality, multi-functionality, redundancy, erosion and re-generation, as well as imagery related to forests and funghi. We will consider how these scores generate an essence of sustainability and how we as movers can create the beginning of change.

Permaculture Ways of Living - Homesteading, Ecovillages & Bioregional Economies
May 04, 2014 to May 09, 2014
The confluence of peak oil, loss of biodiversity, and widespread pollution from carbon-based industries points to the growing need for an alternative to our way of living.
Using natural, scientifically based approaches, the worldwide permaculture movement addresses these issues to develop a healthy, vibrant, more sustainable model we can all use right at home. During this 5-day workshop, leading permaculture teacher Andrew Faust shows us how to live off the grid, while staying connected to our communities and the world. We learn to:
We also explore permaculture in the kitchen, passive cooking, eating regionally and seasonally, and much more.
