Permaculture Design Consultation and Services - Center for BioRegional Living

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.

This 80+ hour Permaculture Design Certification course imparts a positive and empowering vision for social and ecological transformation.

Permaculture Ways of Living - Homesteading, Ecovillages & Bioregional Economies


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:

  • Turn our home, farm, or cabin into a self-sufficient, low-energy-use, off-the-grid dwelling
  • Use natural energy supplies like passive solar and gravity-fed water systems
  • Detox our home and clean indoor air with plants
  • Develop organic, biodynamic, and biointensive home and rooftop gardening techniques

We also explore permaculture in the kitchen, passive cooking, eating regionally and seasonally, and much more.
