Permaculture is a creative and artful way of living, where people and
nature are both preserved and enhanced by thoughtful planning, the
careful use of resources, mimicking the patterns found in nature and a
respectful approach to life.
Growing and selling wholesome food while also taking care of the land is
a challenge for most people who undertake small farming operations.
Relatively few have done so successfully without burning out. When
Permaculture design is applied to a food growing or farming operation,
wastes become resources, work is minimized, yields increase and the land
is restored. The farmer, her neighbors and his community benefit as well.
In this Permaculture Design Certification (PDC) Course, students will
learn the fundamentals of Permaculture while also meeting many growers
who have beat the odds and become solvent at small scale farming and
