Permaculture Design Course in NJ

Learn permaculture principles and practices on field trips to organic farms, community gardens, urban rooftop gardens and suburban installations of deer-proof organic food production across the Garden State.

Several winter classes will be held indoors in Bernardsville, otherwise we'll be heading outside putting what we learn into practice in the diverse settings that New Jersey has to offer.  Certifying instructor will be Wanda Knapik, with many guest speakers and farmers participating.  Winter greenhouse work will be a real treat! 


The 72-hour Permaculture Design Certification curriculum will be completed and design projects will be presented at the end of the class by all students.

$600 per student for 9 classes, with the following schedule:

Jan 11

Feb 1, 8, 22

March 1, 8, 22, 29

April 5

Sign up early as this will fill quickly due to the demand in NJ for an affordable certification program. 

If you are traveling from NYC, take NJ Transit to the Basking Ridge or Bernardsville train stations, and we're a short walk from there.

To confirm registration, please email [masked] (as well as RSVP YES here on the meetup).  This way we can send additional information to your direct email address and answer any questions you might have.

This course is posted on several meetups.  We have 10 students confirmed and 5 spots left. We will accept registrations until Jan 11th, the first day of class.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
