Design Courses

The Austin Permaculture Guild hosts multiple Permaculture Design Courses per year. We hold a a two week intensive class for full immersion into the permaculture lifestyle and are in the process of switching to a 6 weekend format class that is ideal for students with a busy schedule. The ‘6 Weekends’ course will start this October.

You can experience this ground breaking class immersing you in knowledge of how to lead a lifestyle based on the laws of nature, bringing you surplus instead of waste.

    Would there be any advantage to inulaste the soil surface with, say, bags filled with pine needles or even just a tarp to keep as much heat from being lost as possible?

    Yes, mulching the soil surface is always a good idea. A very wise soil scientist, Elaine Ingam, once said, “Mother Nature abhors bare soil.” The mulch will help stabilize the soil temperature and moisture as well as encourage soil life of the soil food web.
