Community Training in Ecological Design


Extension publication cover

Do you want to help your community to be strong and sustainable, and protect the environment and natural resources? Don't miss this upcoming training.  “The training applies permaculture — a design tool that mimics patterns and relationships found in nature —to human-designed food, energy, and building systems to create innovative solutions that improve the quality of life for all New Hampshire communities,” says Mary Tebo Davis, one of the presenters and UNH Cooperative Extension’s natural resources field specialist. “It’s relevant and important for all community leaders, as well as landscape architects and designers and civil engineers. All participants will come away with tools to plan, design, and develop a more resilient and sustainable future for their communities while working in harmony with the natural world.”
