Natural and Zero-Energy Building
Community
Hands-on Experiences, some at new ecovillage

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 learn and practice Permaculture. 

Class meets for 8 hours daily with 2 short breaks and lunch break. All students will take turns on the set up and cleanup crews. There will be homework in the time between weekend classes and design work to be completed before Permaculture Design Certificate is awarded.
