Using natural, scientifically based approaches, the worldwide permaculture movement addresses these issues to develop a healthy, vibrant, more sustainable model we can all use—right at home. During this 5-day workshop, leading permaculture teacher Andrew Faust shows us how to live off the grid, while staying connected to our communities and the world. We learn to:
We also explore permaculture in the kitchen, passive cooking, eating regionally and seasonally, and much more.
Andrew Faust is also teaching Ecological Consciousness.

Andrew Faust has been teaching about permaculture for nearly two decades, in rural settings along the East Coast and in Brooklyn, where he adapted his ideas to urban living through the Center for Bioregional Living. He has lived off the grid for eight years in West Virginia, where he designed and built a permaculture-inspired homestead including a 1,600 square foot straw-bale house. homebiome.com
