We are delighted to offer an Advanced  Permaculture Course in 
Teaching, with Jude Hobbs and Tom Ward, this June at Wolf Gulch Farm. 
With hundreds of graduates of the Permaculture Design Certificate 
Course in the United States, we hope that many will take the 
opportunity to deepen their understanding of how to convey the 
philosophy and practice of Permaculture to others.  Jude and Tom's 
Teacher Training courses get to the heart of Permaculture; focusing 
on group process and the creation of versatile, expansive learning 
environments. Students of this advanced level course have used these 
new teaching tools and techniques in all kinds of settings, including 
community development, activism, coalition building, school programs 
and design courses.
