Covid-19: We're Sorry, but all of our 2020 Courses are Canceled!
Probably like you we never saw this coming regardless, we will continue to make progress on our own local projects which you can follow along with by checking in on our blog, Instagram or Facebook.

You can start your PDC course now anyway!
All of our courses begin with the Foundations of Permaculture Webinar Series.  Study now and take the onsite portion in 2021.

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

We Can All Be Part of the Solution.
The PDC Course lays 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.

"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!"
