Permaculture Class for College Credit In Telluride

From a reader tipoff (thanks April!), I was pointed to a permaculture design course, resulting in a certificate, happening this summer in Telluride. What's cool and unusual about this class is you can get 4 credits at Mesa State College.

The course starts July 16, so if you want to attend this year, you should call the organizers at 970 369 5255 asap.
