Living and Learning Permaculture with Charles and Julia Yelton – Part 2
Part 2 of 2
Building on an interest in sustainable living-related courses at the University of Maine, Peace Studies professor Emily Markides collaborated with renowned permaculture experts Charles and Julia Yelton for the University’s first permaculture course offered in the fall of 2005.
This is a short student-made documentary about this landmark course taught at the Yeltons’ home and demonstration gardens in Whitefield, Maine.
Since 2005, the collaboration has continued between the University, the Yeltons, and the International EcoPeace Community ESTIA, led by Dr. Markides. There has been a permaculture design certificate course offered through the University, an Earth Day ecocharette planning for the University’s first sustainable residence hall, and other significant initiatives and projects.
