Nicholas Burtner has opened the nonprofit School of Permaculture in Plano. He interned at the Permaculture Research Institute of Australia, attended the Earthship Academy for natural and recycled building construction, in Taos, New Mexico, and worked in all of the major climate regions worldwide. Burtner now brings his expertise and passion for teaching, designing and consulting to DFW.
The School of Permaculture focuses on the education of individuals and groups to relearn how to work and harmonize with natural systems for everyday living needs such as housing, food, clean water and community. Classes range from one hour to one-day workshops that include an introduction to permaculture and information on local wild edibles, teas, tinctures, whole system gardening and permaculture design certification.
Burtner states, “We want everyone that wants it to be able to attend and afford our permaculture design course. That’s why we offer an entirely new format which includes a ‘come-when-you-can’ course schedule that integrates with your schedule, a flexible payment plan and kids ages 12 to 17 can come with you free!”
