Introduction to Urban Permaculture
Taught by Andrew Faust
Andrew is one of the premier Permaculture teachers and designers in North America with over two decades of experience in the field. His passionate and visionary presentations and curriculum have been inspiring and motivating teachers and students since his days as a high school teacher at a hippie, freak, artist drop-out school, which he graduated from in '86 in Glenmoore, PA.
Andrew lived off the grid in West Virginia for 8 years where he designed and built his Permaculture Ph.D homestead including a 1600 square foot strawbale house. He moved to Brooklyn in 2007 and has been applying his knowledge to the urban landscape culminating in a Permaculture Design Certification course, with over 500 graduates in NYC, which many consider life-changing. He is developing The Center for Bioregional Living in Ellenville, NY with his partner Adriana Magaña as a hands-on educational campus for students, clients and their daughter Juniper.

Learn how to use the principles of permaculture in the urban landscape and ways to create deeply ecological businesses and enterprises like improving rooftop farms, restaurant farm to table operations, bicycle compost pick up, rooftop edible native plant landscaping, natural non-toxic interior design, and cleaning indoor air with houseplants.
