Co-op Permaculture Design Training
Saturday, October 10th - Wednesday, October 21st

This cooperative permaculture design certification training weaves together the creativity and energy of the participants and trainers in a 12 day exploration of how to design our world to work for all life.

In the awesome presence of fall Sierra serenity we will share our collective insights, wisdom and experience about how to create sustainable, self-reliant communities, low maintenance foodscapes, healthy homes made from the earth, greywater systems, alternative economic systems and all the many other hallmark techniques of permaculture design.

Innovative Cooperative Model
This course is designed within an innovative cooperative framework which allows us to:
Share in the work, quickly build community, and learn in a hands-on environment
Invest in this special site and leave behind artifacts memorializing our time together and what we have learned.
Reduce Costs! A PDC of this nature typically costs $1475. By sharing the work and its fruits, we can offer the 12-day course for as low as $700.

The practical sustainable living and cooperative working skills built during course are set in the context of the ethics and principles of permaculture design - the principles of natural systems.

Full 12-Day Permaculture Design Course
Completion of the 12 day training does result in the internationally standardized Permaculture Design Certificate.

Introductory Weekend Permaculture Course
The first two days of this course, October 10 and 11 will be offered as a stand-alone 'Introduction to Permaculture course' for those with weekend availability only.
The training is appropriate for beginners just learning of permaculture for the first time and experienced designers looking to apply what they have learned before on an inchoate site, for job seekers looking to invent the new economy and for those interested in the intersection of spirit, yoga and sustainable living.
