We love to talk to prospective students about what sets our course apart and makes it so life changing. Send us an email, give us a call.
We look forward to speaking with the future designers of society!

This course will cover the core 72 hour Permaculture Design curriculum, including additional hours of in class and out of class activities to adapt this course to our region and to contemporary ecological issues in the United States. It is perfect for motivated individuals who wish to use the tools of Permaculture in urban and rural environs as well as for modeling sustainable and regenerative businesses.

You will learn research skills, techniques of mapping and overlays, how to comprehensively assess properties and regions, how to apply Permaculture principles to a diversity of settings and issues with an emphasis on urban and temperate environments and so much more.

We provide mentoring for graduates who are serious about taking their studies further. Our developing educational  center in Ellenville, NY along with our growing roster of clients can provide real world opportunities and a deeper understanding of Permaculture.

We provide a positive and empowering vision for social and ecological transformation. Come be inspired by the possibilities of today and not by the fear of tomorrow!

View Syllabus

To receive a certificate students must attend all 11 classes and present a final Permaculture site design. Students will be given the option to present their final design individually which is a different approach than most PDCs. In our experience, and from what our growing number of students say, this contributes to a more practical, professional and intellectually stimulating learning experience. As a result a number of our student's final presentations have gone from paper (or electronic presentations) to actualized, real-world designs.

All classes will be held on either Saturday and/or Sunday from 9am to 5pm and will be held at:

Sixth Street Community Center
Lower East Side Manhattan
638 E. 6th Street between Ave B and C

February 18, 19, - 25, 26 |

March 3, 4 | March 10-11 | March 17 |

Andrew Faust is one of the premier Permaculture teachers and designers in North America with nearly two decades of experience in the field. His passionate and visionary presentation and curriculum has been inspiring and motivating students since his days as an alternative school teacher at Upattinas in Glenmoore, PA. Andrew lived off the grid in West Virginia for 8 years where he designed and built a Permaculture inspired homestead including a 1600 sq ft strawbale house. He moved to Brooklyn in 2007 and has been applying his knowledge to the urban landscape culminating in a Permaculture Design Certification course many consider life changing. He is developing The Center for Bioregional Living in Ellenville, NY with his partner Adriana Magaña as a pilot campus for his students, clients and baby daughter Juniper.
