2020 Permaculture Design Certificate Course

Beautiful homestead outside of Stoughton will be where we’re gathering.  Some of our projects during the course will be grafting fruit trees and pruning an orchard which includes plant guilds and water harvesting swales and berms.  This will be a fairly small class because of limited indoor space.  Lots of hands-on for you.  We also teach Ecological Principles and Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK).  We will spend some time in prairie, wetland,and  woodland observing their unique qualities and systems.  We will also cover some of the basics of Social Permaculture and how it is relates to the principles of permaculture.  This is a 72 hour course over three 3-Day weekends.  For people to become certified the expectation is for you to attend all of the class days.  We also will be having our certified permaculture teachers from 2019 help with the teaching. This will be good!
