The Education mission is to develop cold climate permaculture curriculum, provide educational opportunities for all ages and learning styles, and mentor new permaculture teachers.
PRI-Cold Climate's professionally trained and certified instructors are developing and expanding their curriculum, which covers a variety of special topics, including soil health, waterworks, earthworks, energy systems, natural building, guild and polyculture design, and more.
In 2013, we are offering over 50 workshops on a wide variety of topics surrounding permaculture, urban farming, high-yield production and more. Interested? Check out our calendar to see upcoming workshops, or flip through our 2013 Course Catalog to see everything we're offering this year.
Our Urban Farming Certification Programs are designed to provide hands-on, individualized, comprehensive training and expertise needed to earn an income and produce high-quality, organic food for the expanding local foods market in the Twin Cities.
