Permaculture Foundations Course

Join us at The Eco-Institute to explore the foundations of permaculture through presentations, discussions, field trips, and hands-on building experiences.

This in-depth course offers practical methods to help you and your yard, landscape or community garden become a part of the global movement of ecological design.

Discover new ways in which you can apply permaculture principles where you live.

Explore natural building projects, energy use practices, forest gardening, and other principles of permaculture.

Enjoy a week in the beautiful garden sanctuary surrounded by an inspiring community at The Eco-Institute.
