“Through Permaculture and other ecological design systems, we have the knowledge, information and living examples needed to fix the environmental problems of our world. It is an issue of will, determination, and unity of purpose.” ~ Andrew Millison

This course will teach you the design process and lay the foundation for a lifelong study and path in permaculture.Learn More

 

FREE Microlearning Training

Water is an integral part of permaculture design. That's why we have dedicated programs to help you think about water in your permaculture design.

Our free microlearning training on Water in Permaculture Design is a great place to start.

Full of videos from Andrew Millison's popular classes, this interactive learning module is a great way to experience some of what you can expect in our other permaculture classes and trainings.

This program is designed to be completed in as little as 15 minutes, so why wait?

WHAT PAST STUDENTS HAVE THOUGHT

marianne-cicala-permaculture-design-certificateI knew I needed to educate myself beyond just a big personal garden, and I wanted it sustainable. My favorite thing about Andrew is his absolute compassion and attention to everybody. I always have interns and apprentices on the farm, and the way he taught and shared and partnered with his students really gave me a wonderful mentor in the educational field of permaculture. To have somebody that has that kind of experience and knowledge critiquing my design was priceless. ~ Marianne Cicala

jason-schumacher (1)I have a new skill set now, and  appreciate that a formal class setting gave me a framework and focus while developing my ideas. I would not have been able to take this course if it wasn’t online, even if it was offered at an institution near me. I also appreciate the thorough and thoughtful instructor feedback and the ability to focus on my interests and site-specific needs. ~ Jason Schumacher
