Learn how to use the ecological and economic power of nature.

This course will focus on how to use the power of nature to solve our problems, from the ecological to the economic. We will use both hands-on and class time to explore the patterns of how nature works and how to apply those patterns to a variety of design challenges. We will look at designing single households to communities, urban and rural.

Because everything we do is designed, this class is appropriate for both beginners and design professionals. 

Classes go from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm with a lunch break.

Teachers for this course bring over fifty years of experience in projects from across the country and around the world.
