Beyond the PDC Training toward Professional Work
(You must already have earned your PDC Certificate to take this Training)

We will be sharing the more advanced skills and techniques that we have learned and used over our years of permaculture experience. We drill down deeper into earthworks, water harvesting techniques, planting systems, soil building, farm scale challenges and more. And then we get into how you can create professional looking designs and approach permaculture design as a possible business for yourself. Permaculture design and implementation are greatly needed in the world and we will share out best to help make this happen.

Why Take a Permaculture Course?
Floods, Droughts, Storms and Pandemics Are Likely on the Rise.

Permaculture courses lay out tools, paths and skills we as humans can use to work with each other, and nature, to minimize global disruptions while also improving the health of all life on this planet. This training is all about being the change that brings us toward real and lasting solutions.

We Can All Be Part of the Solution.

“Bill, this PDC course was the best training I have ever had! It was in-depth, practical, hopeful, and applicable everywhere.”

One Month Following Her PDC Course...
"I'm so glad I took the course when I did because it has changed everything in my thinking especially about how to purchase property. I was deeply moved, inspired, and challenged by the material.  I can't stop thinking about it.  The course was just a feast of new possibilities!"
