Come join us! This course takes place from January 31 – February 13 at Project Bonafide (www.projectbonafide.com). Project Bonafide is a 43-acre permaculture site that has been in development for nearly a decade. It has become an important center for education and community development. Infrastructure includes: natural buildings, terraced and medicinal plant gardens, an extensive nursery, fruit and nut orchards, food forests, native timber forestry, timber bamboo plantings, drip-irrigation and ferrocement technologies, renewable energy systems, and composting toilets. Outreach includes social programs that provide educational opportunities based in ecological agriculture, community reforestation efforts, local seed and plant exchanges, a children's nutritional kitchen, and a community center and library that allows Bonafide to be an area for cultural exchange on the island and beyond.
Specific topics include:
-site analysis and design from the tropics to temperate regions
-landscape master planning and microclimate design
