Academic Research Residency
In 2015, we welcomed our first cohort group of academic research residents. Over the course of 3 months, researchers dove head and hands first into agro-ecological systems thinking and design. As part of their residency, participants completed their 72 hour Permaculture Design Course (PDC), earning their certification. Residents also completed farm integrated research projects, on topics ranging from permaculture apple orchards to meditation in K-12 Schools. Their final projects can be viewed here.
The bar was set high, and we look forward to welcoming our newest group of research residents in 2016.
