Although this is a Permaculture Design Course and covers all the curriculum for it set out by Bill Mollison, the program is more than that. It has 4 additional days so that we can give additional curriculum and much extra hands-on experience. Most of the hands-on experience will be at a new 70-acre Permaculture ecovillage.

All of us at Wildflower School and Research Center, Inc, 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 of food quality and climate change, it is more important than ever to learn and practice Permaculture.
Class meets each day 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 and audits to be completed before Permaculture Design Certificate is awarded.
