Maui Makers is pleased to offer this two day Introduction to Permaculture and Live Design Charrette on a 2 acre homestead in Haiku HI.

A “Design Charrette” (shuh-ret) is an intense period of collaborative problem-solving and design activity.

  • Day 1 will consist of an Introduction to Permaculture workshop, a combination of classroom instruction & group work to limber everyone’s designing muscles up.  We’ll also do a site walk / tour and discuss basic constraints and design goals of the case study site. 
  • Day 2 will be a hands-on design day, beginning with ‘Methods of Design’ & ‘Conventions of Design’ sessions to equip participants with the basic tools to begin designing.  You will work with a small team to co-design for a real-life scenario based on the site in Haiku.

Class will be held 9am-5pm Sat March 9 and 9-5 Sun March 10 on-site in Haiku (Maui) Hawaii.

Water and juice will be available. Bring your lunch, bring to share.

General Public price for the weekend is $100.  Members of Maui Makers (maui’s makerspace) get a 15% discount ($85).
