The Advanced Series: in whole systems permaculture design
Our Whole Systems Design program is an advanced permaculture series ideal for those who have existing design experience. This is a unique opportunity to develop your skills in the art and science of adaptive and holistic permaculture design, under the guidance of experienced mentors. Graduates will emerge from these courses with the tools to find innovative solutions to complex problems in any system: ie: land & nature stewardship, building, tools, and technology, education & culture, health & spiritual well-being, finances & economics, land tenure, and community governance. Paula Westmoreland, Lindsay Rebhan, and Bruce Blair will facilitate and instruct most of the Advanced courses, as well as guest instructors.
Our Urban Farming Certification Program is a permaculture-based, comprehensive 9 month training program that weaves together classroom work, individual mentoring, and hands-on practical farming experience and will certify 20 new farmers in 2015. Whether you’re ready to start your own urban CSA or small business, hoping to teach, become a local foods leader, or simply looking to ensure healthy food to your neighbors and family, we invite you to join us by applying today!
