We invite our food and farming community to come together for this unique permaculture course to strengthen skills that can help us to be more effective in creating more sustainable farms and food system. The Permaculture Design course is an internationally recognized 72-hour course of study where participants will learn about sustainable food production, renewable energy, water harvesting, natural building, earthworks, and animal husbandry, as well as biodynamics–all geared to provide the skills to practice permaculture on any scale, from a city lot to a suburban yard or country homestead.

This course is rewarding and challenging for anyone from beginners to those with years of experience in sustainability, horticulture or environmental stewardship.
