In person and online Permaculture Courses: We are offering an in person Permaculture Design Course starting second weekend in Sept, delivered on our permaculture farm and in St Pete, and an online version starting Jan 15, 2022. We have the longest running Permaculture Design Course in Florida and focus on practical application to ensure you are successful with your own site or in a career. Also, we offer a free intro course online! Our certificate is endorsed by Permaculture Institute of North America. Early bird rates through end of July for the in-person course, see
https:// growpermaculture.com or[masked] for more info.
We have gotten many requests to offer an online version from people whose schedules don’t match up with our in-person courses or who prefer to study online. This course can be studied at your own pace, with a focus on your own site design. Creating the opportunity for a participatory and hands-on experience is important to us, so we include practical exercises that you perform on your own site. In addition we will have live Q and A sessions and personal mentoring with instructors and you will be able to share your experience with instructors and other students via photos, essays or videos.
In addition we have added some exciting learning modules to the online version and other extras, including units with experts covering various topics. The course will address strategies for drylands, temperate, tropical and other climates based on the significant knowledge and experience of our instructors working in those climates and will also have bonus sections focused specifically on Florida/subtropical climate because of how unique the ecosystem is in Florida. Many of these techniques are very useful in multiple climates and we explain how and why.
