Dan and Cynthia Hemenway, editors and publishers of The International
Permaculture Solutions Journal, will lead an intensive  Permaculture Design
Workshop Aug. 10 through 20, 1998, near Guarambarè, Paraguay.  The workshop
includes sections on ecological design principles, design application of
appropriate technologies, and economic, social and ethical considerations in
Permaculture design.  Themes treated include energy, nutrient cycles,
cultivated systems, potential catastrophes, water, buildings, urban
Permaculture, alternative economics and bioregionalism. Students will form
teams and design the course site, a small farm. The design will integrate human
activity with the contour, soil, solar energy, and water flows of the site to
provide water, food, shelter, energy, and other patterns supportive of the
residents.  All lessons and activities will focus on the design process for
this site. Limited scholarships are available.  Child care can be arranged with
advance notice. Send SASE for a preregistration packet to: Stelvio Ravasio &
