Permaculture Women’s Guild presents
114-hr online Permaculture Design Course, with advanced training in Social, Emotional, Personal, and Cultural applications of ecological principles and stewardship philosophies.
More than 40 Women from 13 countries have crafted an accessible, comprehensive online course for a global community of mothers, sisters, healers, activists, gardeners, problem solvers, and eco-feminists.
We’re training a new generation of permaculture designers with the skills they need to not only design landscapes and create closed-loop homestead systems, but also to manifest personal, cultural and ecological abundance.
5 Reasons you should take this course
1. Extra emphasis on social and emotional permaculture provides a one-of-a-kind education in advanced stewardship, community organizing, and using permaculture to elevate social, emotional, and cultural abundance.
2. Go at your own pace, online format means you have time for ongoing hands-on experimentation, and gives what you have learned a chance to percolate in your mind.
3. The teaching team offers the unparallelled strength of more than 400 years combined experience.
4. The cost is a fraction of what you’d pay for an on-site residential course, and with us, you don’t even need to find childcare or to take time off work!
5. Help build and support other Permaculture Women’s Guild programs. A portion of your tuition helps us offer internships and collaborations, free intro courses, our upcoming online teacher training, and Permaculture Women Magazine (on Medium!)
