Join us for a unique opportunity to learn about Permaculture design with a focus on medicinal and edible plants. The three-weekend, 27-hour course covers the basic concepts of Permaculture design, site analysis and the therapeutic benefits of medicinal herbs, culminating in a design to be implemented on the NCNM campus. Each weekend, we will explore Permaculture concepts and apply them onsite to develop our final design at the end of the third weekend. Find out more and register for the Permaculture design course »
