Everyone has heard about organic gardening, but do you know why it is different from permaculture? “Permaculture uses organic gardening and farming practices but it goes beyond these practices and integrates the garden and home to create a lifestyle that impacts less on the environment.” Learn more about the differences between the two by visiting
George Mason’s Sustainability Institute, in conjunction with the Office of Continuing Professional Education, is presenting the fourth annual offering of the Permaculture Design Certification Course, March 7-March 14, 2015 on the Fairfax Campus. This course continues to grow in popularity and size each year. Spaces are limited and early registration is strongly encouraged.

2014 Leadership Coaching for Organizational Performance Alumni Conference
“Energized.” “Inspired.” “Connected.” These were among the many comments made during the first annual Leadership Coaching for Organizational Performance Alumni Conference. It was a wonderful day filled with networking, brainstorming, and education. Productive brainstorming sessions yielded an extensive list of action items from the conference. OCPE and Philosophy IB will work together to develop a steering committee that will address the list of ideas generated at the conference. As we continue to build a strong alumni network we welcome any and all input. We look forward to the future and another successful alumni conference in 2015.
We are currently accepting applications for the fall Leadership Coaching for Organizational Performance Certificate Program. Visit ocpe.gmu.edu/coaching.html for more information.
