“The course has been by far one of the most
useful and inspiring educational experiences
I have ever had the benefit of."
- FLPCI Design course student

A Permaculture certificate demonstrates to others that
you have earned the right to use the word "permaculture"
for design practice and further personal study by
completing an internationally recognized curriculum.

As is with most education, the importance is not in the
paper, but in the process. Finger Lakes Permaculture
Institute Design Certificate graduates walk away with
a better understanding of systems and how they can observe,
design and work toward positive change in their environments.
An in-depth look at the theories, best-practices, and
methodologies combined with day-long study, collaboration
and practice create an intense and inspirational learning event.
