Low Tuition  & Payment Plans
We think everyone should understand the principals of Permaculture Design and are committed to making our Permaculture Design Certification affordable. We offer low priced tuition as well as the option to pay by payment plan. What more can we say? These features have helped many of our students get the training in Permaculture that they needed to take their careers to the next level.

Flexible Scheduling
In order to receive a certificate students must be present for every class. However, Center for Bioregional Living's PDC's are unique in that we allow students to make up missed days and complete their certificate in one of our many upcoming courses. Want to start immersing yourself in the design solutions of permaculture but can't make all the classes? No problem. You can make up missed days and receive your certificate in a future PDC course.

Experienced Teaching Team
Andrew Faust has nearly two decades of experience designing and teaching permaculture and hundreds of inspired and empowered students. Our entire teaching team is not only experienced but also passionate about teaching Permaculture and sharing the tools for positive solutions. From these leaders in the field you will learn dynamic ways to create opportunity and abundance wherever you are.

Continued Mentoring
Our team of experienced teachers are available to work with you after the PDC is finished. We have continued to mentor and consult with many of our students either in person or remotely on green career changes, business models, permaculture designs, life path visioning, teacher training and more. We want to help you change the world!

Urban and Rural Learning Opportunities
Our rotating campus in the city and our upstate permaculture farm will provide you with the theory and practice to get you where you want to go. Advanced training and hands-on workshops round out your knowledge gained in our PDC.

Learn to Apply Permaculture to Business Models and Regional Scale Designs
Think Permaculture is all about gardening or homesteading? THINK AGAIN! Permaculture is a widely adaptable design tool that enables you to design for an entire system such as a business model, property, region, community, greenway, social structure...Permaculture is only limited by your experience and your imagination. We are here to help you cultivate both!

Our Urban Permaculture focus will feature two excellent field trips: the extensive natural laboratory that is Prospect Park and the community gardens of the Lower East Side that have been retrofitted to harvest rainwater and reclaim brownfields with Lars Chellberg and Paula Amram.

You will learn how to apply permaculture principles to a diversity of settings and issues with an emphasis on urban and temperate bioregions. You will graduate with a competency in full site design, master planning and a deep understanding of permaculture design. You will be poised to creatively, imaginatively and comprehensively assess and consult for properties, business models and social structures.

We hope you can join us!

    Hi, I'm interested in this course but I have the impression there's not a lot of hands on experience offered, right?

      Hello Silvia! This course will have a hands-on design process with Paula Avram, a eyes-on look at water harvesting an dbrown field remediating techniques and a permaculture walk through Prospect Park that will cover forest succession, reading the landscape, siting buildings and more. We won't be digging swales or planting trees, but will cover so much in depth with our amazing guest teachers and ourselves. We offer many volunteer opportunities and workshops upstate on our property in Ellenville and this spring will be offering natural building, herbalism and seed starting workshops.
