Ecological Literacy Immersion Program: A 4-Week Course & PDC Certificate
OMEGA ECOLOGICAL LITERACY IMMERSION PROGRAM: DESIGNING FOR OUR REGENERATIVE FUTURE ( This 4-week residential certificate course, now in its 6th year, offers nonprofit professionals, educators, entrepreneurs, college and graduate students, business leaders, and others an innovative systems design experience and frameworks that can be integrated into current or future work to regenerate the health and well-being of people and our planet. Led by over 20 experienced teachers (including Connor Stedman, Abrah Dresdale, Kaylynn Sullivan TwoTrees, Dave Jacke, John Todd, Naima Penniman, Ken Greene, Rowan White, Dina Falconi, Steve Gabriel and more!) from the fields of permaculture, regenerative agriculture, ecological engineering, water and soil science, wilderness awareness, and whole systems design, among others, this unique program explores many issues related to social and systemic change. We are very excited to announce that Vandana Shiva will also be with us during the time we are hosting this year’s immersion program, and she has agreed to lead a session with the 2018 ELIP class! (any ELIP alums in the area are welcome to join us). Participants earn an internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certificate. Please inquire about professional development and college or graduate credit options. Visit for more information and to see fundraising & scholarship information. It looks like we should still be able to offer some scholarship assistance for 2018, though most of the funding has already been awarded to applicants. Participants in this program are automatically enrolled in the weekend workshop Grow Food Everywhere with Deb Habib & Ricky Baruc of Seeds of Solidarity at no extra cost. We will also have a few evening talks during this 4-week program that the general public is welcome to join free of charge. Contact Moira Dwyer: [masked].
