Scholarships  are open for permaculture workshop.

	Scholarship applications  may now be submitted  to attend the 10-day
permaculture 
design workshop Aug. 6-15, 1999, in Camptonville, Northern California. 
Deadline for 
applications is July 14. 
	Led by permaculturists Dan and Cynthia Hemenway, participants will form teams
and 
develop a design for the family homestead that is the workshop site.  The
program is suitable 
for beginners seeking to learn to design their own homes, people  seeking deep
preparation 
for a certificate Permaculture Design Course, and advanced students  working on
their design 
skills.  Scholarships are only open to people without  previous permaculture
training, 
however.
	The initial weekend is a stand-alone workshop where participants produce a
rough 
draft permaculture design.  Starting Monday, participants flesh out and refine
their design, 
delivering a report to the residents the following Saturday.  Instruction
during the week is 
confined to topics needed to produce this specific design. 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. 
Creating a joyous and 
enjoyable setting is central to the design goals. Sunday afternoon, Dan will
conclude the 
workshop with a clinic to discuss permaculture-related problems that
participants bring 
from their own situations. Participants can register for the full workshop or
just the initial 
weekend. There is a limit on enrollment.  
	The workshop is designed to meet the needs of a variety of participants
including:  
people wishing to learn to design their own homes; people seeking strong
preparation for 
the certificate Permaculture Design Course, certified permaculturists seeking
advanced work, 
and present or future students of the Online Permaculture Design Course who
will use the 
workshop to meet their design project requirement.
	Child care can be arranged with advance notice. Send SASE for a complete
