Promote Permaculture & get paid

(OR Support Deserving Students Through Our Scholarship Fund!)

First off, thank-you for your interest & willingness to tell people about what we do, and sharing information about our products and courses. We are so incredibly thankful to be able to make out living teaching and designing permaculture systems and couldn’t do it without the continued support of our network!

For some time now, we’ve noticed that word-of-mouth is one of the most effective ways that new students discover our programs. With that, we’ve devised a way to make it as easy as possible for you to spread the word (and for us to be able to show you our appreciation!).


First, you must register below to become an official referral partner. Then, when a student, referred by you, purchases a spot in a permaculture design course, you will receive a credit worth 10% of the tuition fee.

You then have three options for your credit:

  1. Donate your credit(s) to the Verge Permaculture Scholarship Fund. Our scholarship fund allows us to provide discounts on our course fees to deserving students, with over $15k in scholarships having been awarded since 2010. As a fund supporter, your name will be listed on our scholarship information page (found here) and your support allows us to increase the amount and number of scholarships that we normally would offer.
  2. Use the credits towards any of our other courses and programs. You can also elect to use your credits towards other Verge Permaculture programs. Your credits will never expire and can be redeemed at any time.
  3. Get paid. Alternatively, we can simply pay you cash (details below!).

How We Keep Track

There are two ways we can track your referrals.

Every time a new student registers for a course we ask “How did you hear about our program? Did someone refer you?“. If the new student indicates your name (and you’ve already become an official referral partner), we will credit the referral to your account.

If you are more tech and internet savvy, and have a website presence or newsletter presence, we can also generate custom url links specifically generated for your website or newsletters. If you’d prefer custom urls, select the appropriate checkbox below & we’ll generate those for you.


  • If you choose to be paid cash for your referrals, we will accrue your credits and issue you a check, in CAD funds, once per year, in January.
  • To keep our management of the program as straightforward as possible, we request that you make your credit election at the time you register. You can get in touch with us at a later time should you want to change your credit election go-forward.
  • We reserve the right to modify commission percentages, pricing, offerings, and any term of the referral program at any time. You will be immediately notified of such changes.


Once you sign up you’ll also get a confirmation email with a few helpful resources.

Promotional Resources
We want to make it easy for you to promote our stuff, so as soon as we announce new course dates we'll send you an email with tons of promotional resources such as ad copy, email paragraphs, suggested facebook posts, posters and buttons or banners for your website and newsletters. . 



Again, we can’t thank-you enough for your support!
