A logical next step for those who've taken our Permaculture Design Certificate, this advanced course focuses on teaching you to build climate change resilience as a design layer.
This course shows you how to create a permaculture food forest. These intentionally cultivated forest gardens contain native and cultivated plants which provide yields for humans.
PERMACULTURE WATER MANAGEMENT
This advanced program teaches you the principles of water harvesting that you can use to create functional site designs. Learn to identify both water and solar site resources in your design.
I 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

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
