9:00 a.m.

Successful management of water is essential to optimize biomass production and the health of our soil, plants, and permaculture systems. Water is literally and figuratively the system lubricant: moving and delivering nutrients and sustaining life.

This class will introduce how soil, plants, and water work together, as well as how we can design and build resilient water management systems. Using permaculture principles, the course will explore common approaches and issues regarding the capture, storage, harvest, and use of rain and surface water to promote vibrant growth and landscapes.

This class is presented by the Permaculture Research Institute and sponsored by our master of arts in sustainable design program.
