~~ Permaculture and Education ~~
This introduction to the Permaculture design system includes the ethics, history, design process, and examples of systems that show the diverse scales at which Permaculture design is applied. This is a talk geared for complete beginners, as well as experienced practitioners who wish to see my version of the Permaculture “stump speech”. Some version of this talk and slide presentation has been used to introduce Permaculture to many who have never heard the word.
Andrew spent years running a design and build Permaculture landscape company, Millison Ecological Inc., where he completed large scale and high profile projects including rockstar Maynard Keenan’s Merkin Vineyard, initiated the well-known Ecohood project, worked with ecological wastewater pioneer Dr. John Todd, and worked with Dr. Gary Paul Nabhan on heirloom fruit tree preservation to earn his Master’s degree. Andrew also worked as a draftsman and designer in an ecological Landscape Architecture office where he completed designs at the commercial, municipal, and residential scales.
Andrew currently teaches and does freelance Permaculture design. His recent designs range from 5-25 acres and documentation of his extensive portfolio of hands-on projects, design work, and published articles can be viewed at his website www.beaverstatepermaculture.com.
