Permaculture Design Projects

Design is best learned by doing. Every permaculture course requires a group design project that integrates all of the ethics, principles, methods, and concepts that are covered in the whole course. It is a way to more fully embody what has been taught and learned, and to participate in a real-life exercise.

Looking at permaculture designs from other student groups is a powerful exercise to hone in your own eye for design. You can learn new ways to approach design, that you might not have considered, expanding your perspective of what's possible. Study these design projects, then try your own!
