The Lyons Farmette, YummyYards and Woodbine Ecology Center are thrilled to offer a two-week Permaculture Design Certification Course at The Lyons Farmette, located in Lyons, CO from March 15th – March 31st 2013. The course features an intensive 82-hour immersion into permaculture principles and ecological design, featuring many diverse, dynamic and experienced permaculture teachers from the Colorado Front Range.
Through a combination of lecture, discussion, workshops, site tours, hands-on projects and on-site group design projects, you will learn how to observe ecosystems and design regenerative systems that provide food, energy and shelter. Engage in the revolutionary act of self-empowerment and discover how to build resilient human communities that care for the earth, provide for people and create a surplus for all to share.
