As we ride through the unknown journey of the COVID-19 Pandemic and a deeply shaken economy, we all need to figure out new ways to work and earn our living.  With a changing climate, a new economy, and perhaps a different way of living post-pandemic, it may be a good time to re-examine how we work, what we do to earn our dollars, and consider starting a business.  Whether you think you’d be a great consultant, have a product or not-for-profit idea, or want to start a cooperative enterprise or even a farm, you need to know whether or not your personality is well-suited to business ownership, what type of enterprise you can succeed at, and what additional skills and information you need to get started.  This introductory 3 week course will give you a solid foundation, lots of resources to design a thriving enterprise, and, if you do all of your homework, a business plan to get your business launched!


Course Description:

Apply Regenerative/Ecological Design process to design and create a thriving, mission-based business.

How can we use the ethics, principles, and ecological design process (aka permaculture) to design a business where we can earn a right livelihood while also thriving in a post COVID-19 world suffering from climate disruption?  

Do you have the personality to be a business owner/entrepreneur?  If so, what do you need to know, consider, and plan for in order to launch a business that will have a high likelihood of success and a plan for handling failures and hurdles?  

Join Patty Love, Earth Activist Training PDC Graduate and Co-teacher and Certified Permaculture Teacher, for this three-week online course that will help answer these questions.  In this course, Patty weaves together her decade of permaculture study and practice with her formal education in Business and 20 years of successful self-employment.  

Fully participating in this course, including completing homework between classes and utilizing the tools developed, will empower you to be significantly prepared to put your business plan into action.
