University Permaculture at Auburn’s Rural Studio

Spiral Ridge Permaculture has been working with the University of Auburn’s Rural Studio  for the last two years consulting on student design projects.  Every year I am amazed by the caliber of architecture students at Rural Studio.  Not to mention the professors.

“Rural Studio is an off-campus design-build program of Auburn University. The program, established in 1993 by D.K. Ruth and Samuel Mockbee, gives architecture students a more hands-on educational experience whilst assisting an underserved population in West Alabama’s Black Belt region. In its initial years, the Studio became known for establishing an ethos of recycling, reusing and remaking. In 2001, after the passing of Samuel Mockbee, Andrew Freear succeeded him as director. Since that time, Rural Studio has expanded the scope and complexity of its projects, focusing largely on community-oriented work.”

This ethos has now evolved. They have introduced Permaculture into their program.  Something that all Universities will be adopting in the future due to student demand.  Call us today if your University is interested.
