Dan Dorsey – Lead Teacher


Dan Tucson Green Mag - cropped shorter - websizeServing as the manager of  Sonoran Permaculture Guild and as its lead teacher and designer for the last eighteen years, I have taught workshops and courses throughout Southwest drylands, and in Mexico and on Native American nation’s territory. By combining a B.S. in Forestry, masters level work in Landscape Architecture, and Permaculture, I have evolved over the years a system of design that works well for design clients and for teaching the Permaculture Design course. I have completed two Permaculture Design courses and have been awarded a Permaculture Diploma in the field of Education, Design, and Community Service by the Permaculture Institute in Sante Fe. I am on the adjunct faculty of Prescott College and Pima Community College, having taught classes and mentored students on Permaculture, passive solar design, water harvesting, edible plants of the Sonoran desert, and sustainable site planning/design. I manage the Sonoran Permaculture Guild certification course held each Spring in Tucson and sometimes in another Southwest city in the Fall, teaching the majority of the course content.
