  • PF_Logo_WhiteBG_Web_600px


    Permaculture is a vision, design system, and global movement that draws on patterns and principles found in nature to meet human needs, while regenerating the natural world and creating abundance we can share. This weekend permaculture design course moves from principles and patterns to details in a supportive, respectful and collaborative atmosphere to promote rapid learning of whole systems design. The course is centered on experiential learning and hands-on skill building, including local field trips where we will see theory in action. It covers the internationally recognized 72-hour permaculture curriculum with an additional focus on social permaculture, community building and organizing. The course concludes with a design practicum, where participants will work in small groups to develop a design for the course client.

    This course is structured in twelve weekend day sessions, allowing full-time workers, students and people with families more flexibility to participate. Successful completion of this course will earn participants an internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certificate.
