Our Sustainable Living with Permaculture course for[masked] is full. The course is being taught again starting early in 2014. It will be taught by several Permaculture Certificate Holders who have received their Permaculture certificates from different instructors, at different times, and with different Permaculture and Sustainable Living education and life experiences, even work experiences, to teach you. We think our combined effort offers you the best of Permaculture instruction and the best of sustainable living education.
Although this is a Permaculture Design Course and follows the curriculum for it, the program is more than that. Extra time will be spent on:
Water--From the sky, Storage, Earthworks, Greywater
Food Forests--Succession, Design, Perennial food plants
Green & Natural Building
Living off Grid--Solar, Rainwater Harvesting, Greenhouse, Community
Several Additional Designs and Audits
All of us believe that Permaculture should be available at costs that allow anyone who wants to practice it an affordable way to get the knowledge. In these uncertain times, it is more important than ever to let Permaculture help us reforest and renew our planet and our lives.
Cost is $375 for classes and materials. Early bird (received by January 15): $275.
$100 is a deposit and will not be returned if student does not take the class.
