ARTS & ECOLOGY

Our Mission

The Harrison House Arts & Ecology Center is dedicated to the practice and teaching of drylands permaculture and to providing a place for artists to explore the intersection of art and ecology.


Growing Food, conserving water and climate change are subjects that many of us have thought about this past year as we’ve had to consider how to sustain ourselves.

To delve more deeply into these areas join us for a dynamic weekend at the Harrison House Music, Arts and Ecology center March 19-21 on an introductory learning journey into the heart of the many facets of permaculture. This course will be led by international permaculture educator, designer and storyteller, Warren Brush. Cost is $200 (early bird until February 19).

A full Permaculture Design Certification Course (PDC) will be offered May 15-28 facilitated by Brush along with a team of local and international specialists.

These courses will be held out-of-doors, socially distanced with strict COVID protocols in place. In the event that we must cancel full refunds will be given.
