Beyond OSU

Andrew Millison has been studying, teaching and practicing Permaculture since he took his first design course in 1996. He started teaching Permaculture at the college level in 2001, and has been an instructor at OSU in the Horticulture Department since 2009.

Andrew first learned Permaculture in the drylands, where he studied at Prescott College for his undergraduate and Master's degrees.

In Arizona, his focus was on rainwater harvesting, greywater systems, and desert agriculture. He started a Permaculture landscape design and build company, and also worked in an ecologically-based Landscape Architecture firm. In recent years, Andrew's focus has been more on design for climate change resilience, broad scale water management for farm and development planning, Permaculture housing developments, and Oregon water law for obtaining water rights. Andrew brings his rich experience of designing and building his own and clients' projects for over 20 years to his teaching, and seeks to impart real world experience to his students.
