Having my draft design reviewed by an experienced permaculture designer and the keen eyes of the other students gave me confidence that I was on the right track and had considered alternatives to end up with a workable plan. As an instructor of the Oregon State University Permaculture Design Course, Javan modeled and encouraged a culture of constructive criticism and thoughtful discussion in the course.
