Prerequisites: It is recommended, but not mandatory, that students complete a basic biology or ecology course prior to entering this course. Students need to bring their own design basic tools, such as a set of rulers, glue, scissors, coloring pencils and markers.


The course analyzes the ethical, ecological and design principles proposed by Permaculture as well as its basic techniques. The analysis is addressed as the ?permanent culture? (and beyond) and as the sustainable and resilient, intelligent, and regenerative design process, emphasizing its applications to urban and field systems, including intangible energies in order to develop competences, values and skills to improve our world environmental and socioeconomic conditions.

The environmental and social aspects, the importance of integrality and interdisciplinarity, the need for systems designed in terms of efficiency and resilience and the implications of the values and principles promoted by permaculture on a personal and community level are studied and practiced. The course aims to provide students with basic skills to design or re-design systems in order to achieve regenerativity.

Capabilities of analysis, design and problem solving are gathered. A final design project is prepared, which aims to apply permaculture content to reality. The Veritas Garden is used as a living laboratory, which allows to deepen the basic abilities of observation, analysis and organization of ideas for successful design. Field trips provide the opportunity for observation and direct interaction with different designs that exemplify the implementation and success of Permaculture.
