Please Note:
There will not be a PDC course on Jordan Rubin's Heal the Planet Farm this year.
We have so much happening at Jordan's farm in Missouri this year that fitting in a PDC will just not work. We are sorry if you were counting on this. What about 2021?  We shall see.

OK. This is the Schedule for the year.
We have 9 Trainings for you to Choose From. We'd love to meet you at one of them. Here we go 2020...!


Traveling Here is Easy
 We've had students from almost all 50 states and over 20 countries.

If you can get to Chicago's Midway airport, we'll help you get to Stelle for just $2.
 Please Note: 85% of the Content of Each PDC Course is Identical.
We always follow the internationally recognized PDC curriculum. The remaining 15% focuses on the uniqueness of each location or course as stated.
For most PDC's a $350 deposit will reserve your seat and the Foundations of Permaculture Webinar Series is linked to you immediately.
This means you can start your PDC Course with the webinars at any time.

“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!"
