Hands-On Training in Creating Regenerative and Just Human Ecosystems!
Join the Northeast’s longest continuously running Permaculture Design Certification Program – led by the most experienced permaculture practitioners, designers, builders, growers, activists, and incredible guests from near and far!
Sleep under the stars on the riverside with entirely local organic meals catered three times a day – while visiting the farms, urban homesteads, food businesses and other players at the heart of an agricultural economy renaissance, and ecological regional livelihoods.
Form lifelong bonds with like-minded practitioners, and join the nation’s largest network of permaculture alumni.
Full scholarships available for income-eligible VT state residents, and fully transferable credits available from the University of Vermont.
Develop skills, observation, and practice in the region’s largest collection of tree crops, and immerse in our herb gardens, wildlife and pollinator refuge, sacred spaces, festival grounds, and working debt-free land-access experiment.
Develop DESIGNS for real-world sites in a collaborative atmosphere and participatory process, AND create individual designs for a site of your choosing.
This summer we will have a special focus on permaculture in education (public schools, etc.), ecosystem and food-based livelihoods, and permaculture’s role in urban and social design.
