Permaculture is an ecological design science that offers insights and practical techniques for living fruitful and abundant lives.   

Permaculture is addressing the major issues of our day from a whole systems view. It is a worldwide movement that is helping to regenerate local ecologies and economies.

 

Permaculture incorporates traditional methods, intuition, and in-depth site analysis. Learn how to create beneficial interrelationships in landscapes and infrastructures,create microclimates and design cultivated ecosystems.

 

Come and learn how to design an ecologically integrated and highly self sufficient Community Supported Farm, ecovillage, homestead, town or region. The confluence of climate change, economic collapse, peak oil and wide spread pollution are all pointing to a need for an articulate and comprehensive alternative.

 

Learn to live well with the earth!

Andrew Faust, one of New York City’s leading Ecological Design teachers, will describe a beautifully simple and effective way to transition from an inherently inefficient and polluting economy to a healthy and prosperous economy and infrastructure.

Some of our graduate testimonials

Feeling trapped in a corporate job and seeking a new path, I discovered this thing called permaculture that seemed to resonate with my deepest yearnings for myself and the world. That is, a lifestyle that is ecologically and ethically sound and fulfilling. Thankfully, I answered the call and participated in Andrew Faust’s Urban Permaculture Design Certification in 2009. Those permaculture goggles Andrew gave us expanded my view, allowing me to see a bigger picture of how to approach just about everything. It launched me in the direction of my current and ongoing path as an herbalist, healer, earth lover, dreamer, and spirit-being-in-human-form. Thank you, Andrew and Adriana for your openness, kindness, and wisdom. You are a living, thriving model of a truly fulfilling, beneficial, and regenerative culture. - Liz Neves

 

While taking this class, I found myself describing it to people as Sustainability 101. Before getting into permaculture / taking this class, I knew about various eco friendly practices - organic/local food, composting, gardening, less driving - but this course united all these practices under one broad coherent philosophy underpinned by a set of ethics. One way to frame the ethics, in the words of Bill McDonough, is "how can we love all of the children of all species for all time?" Yes, this may feel ambitious, but it is also hopeful and inspirational. Can we truly respect and protect the land which gives us so much while happily satisfying our various needs? Can we leave the land in better shape after having engaged with it? To both these questions this course answers a resounding 'yes', then quickly proceeds to the practicalities of how to do so, delving into the growing of food, energy systems, water management, the concept of appropriate technology, and more. This course is the real deal and it is refreshing. - Boris Kerzner

Testimonials

Andrew's class opened my eyes to new ways of seeing, as well as provided tools for approaching the challenges of our present day society in a positive and impactful way. His focus on "turning the problem into the solution" is something so needed right now in our society, and has inspired me to approach my art and artistry in a whole new way, as well as my everyday life. 

 

This class goes far beyond gardening and agriculture, and addresses how we can apply the principles of permaculture to all aspects of life, be it big or small, personal or professional. Taking this class was the greatest gift I gave to myself this year, and I know that I will be living my life in a more meaningful and intentional way because of it. 

 

This class is for everyone- the activist, the artist, the empath, the curious, the farmer, the urbanite, the teacher, the student -- whether you have a 30 acre piece of land or a small windowsill, you will get such immense value and deep knowledge from this class, and will leave a whole lot wiser.

 

Thank you so much, Andrew and Adriana, for your dedication to the principles and practice of permaculture, and for being so generous and thoughtful with your knowledge. I am deeply grateful to you both, and for this class - Celia Rowlson-Hall

The online course is 100% worth it. I just completed the online 2020 permaculture certification course and was blown away by the amount of information I gained. The information itself is a healthy mix of bass-tacks-know-how (geared towards the Northeast), theoretical, analytical, biological, philosophical, cosmic, and spiritual. Because of this, the class is suited for anyone who is interested in learning or DOING permaculture. Andrew's knowledge is vast, informative, and sobering. You can't fake that. It becomes very clear within the first few minutes.

 

If you are living in the North East and want to create a green job for yourself, this is the next step you should take.

 

P.S. If you have any reservations because it's online, it's not an issue at all. It's not worth waiting for the pandemic is be done with. - Ben Feistmann
