About the Instructor: Jerome Osentowski is the founder and director of the Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute in Basalt, CO (7000’). Jerome founded the Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute over 25 years ago, with a mission to develop the art and science of permaculture in our Rocky Mountain climate. Since then, he has developed an acre of pinon-juniper hillside on Basalt Mountain, into a lush paradise of edible forest gardens. The Permaculture Institute site includes four greenhouses, the largest of which supports tropical perennial plants year-round, including banana, papaya, passion fruit, mango, citrus, fig, and a large variety of annual vegetables and salad greens. He is a pioneer in the use of perennials in greenhouses as well as creating healthy self-supporting indoor ecosystems.
