HORT 485 - Advanced Permaculture Design Tools For Climate Resilience

Permaculture is a design system for creating sustainable human habitation that enriches the natural world. With climate change, geophysical and social conditions are shifting on the planet. There are specific tools that the permaculture designer can use to assess, analyze and project future climate scenarios and respond to them with resilient design. Climate analogue identification and climate change forecasting provide the basis for a student design project that addresses current and future climatic conditions. Students will complete all design mapping assignments using Google Earth Pro, and tutorials will be provided as a component of the course curriculum.
