A Permaculture Design Course That Works With You!
Come When You Can | Start When You Can | Pay When You Can

Many students express their deep desire to take a Permaculture Design Course but cannot due to limitations such as finances, time, and family obligations. We have listened and have designed a Permaculture Design Course that harmonizes with these hurdles and makes learning permaculture truly accessible.

We are rolling out an entirely new format for taking a Permaculture Design Course. The new format makes this course very accessible for learning permaculture and in obtaining very valuable hands on permaculture experience, as well as getting your permaculture design certification.


Come When You Can
This course will integrate into your daily life as it runs twice, continuously throughout the year. We aim for every second weekend of the month but may change which weekends in presence of a major event or holiday. This allows for a “Come When You Can” model where you are never under any pressure to feel rushed or crammed to fit the course into your daily life.

The course runs in it’s entirety 2 times a year. One starts in January and the other in July. Take as long as you want to finish the course (years if needed but not recommended) and come any day of the course. If you cannot start on day 1, then a Free Intro Into Permaculture Class (that is given every Friday evening before each weekend of the course – those dates are posted here) is necessary to start on any other day of the course.

Flexible Payment – Pay Course Entirety or Per Day
No longer will you HAVE to come up with all of the funds to pay for the Permaculture Design Course all at once. This Permaculture Design Course format lifts the burden off of us (on certain levels) which in turn will lift the financial burden off of you. If you have the funds all at once – great pay the course in full. If you would like to pay by the day that is great too!

Build Relationships
Most Permaculture Design Courses run for 2 weeks straight. This is a great submersion experience and we still offer these kinds of courses. However, what they lack is the long term relationships that are made with seeing the same faces and making strong connections with your peers and teachers. Permaculture IS about relationships and this format harnesses that power.

Kids Come Free
We would love to run day care but we just are not staffed to do so. But your child/children ages 12-17 can come for free. Our staff may interview your kid/s too to help in making our Permaculture for Orphans Program the best it can be. You never know they might learn something too.

Course Times
Each course date starts at 9:00 am and ends at 5:00 pm
