Important NOTE: The Sustainable Living Through Permaculture 1 (SLTP1) class is a prerequisite for SLTP2 (see below) and all other Permaculture (PC) classes, including the Designing Our Green Homes and Communities Through Permaculture Series (please see below, in this entry).
In SLTP 1, the design principles of Permaculture (PC) are explained, observed and illustrated in a series of breakout sessions at a home and garden remodeled to reflect PC sustainability principles. This garden has cisterns, many types of fruits, vegetables, habitat plants, a small area for collecting excess rain and a remodeled home that includes many features to reduce energy consumption. Instructors are members of the Permaculture Guild of Houston, which is a group of people who have completed 92 hours of Permaculture classes to become Certified Permaculture Designers.
Sustainable Living Through Permaculture 2 will be held 2/01/2015 12noon – 4:30 pm.
It will be on the University of Houston Main Campus, Room & Bldg TBA. Cost: $50. It will be a classroom presentation, where participants carefully explore principles demonstrated in the Sustainable Living Through Permaculture 1 (SLPC 1) class, look at issues connected with larger rural sites, and begin the design of a farm/home site that connects and integrates food with housing and nature. SLPC 2 is designed to complete what is begun in SLPC 1.
