With over 72 hours of classroom and hands-on instruction, the PDC is the international standard for permaculture certification. You’ll discover the principles for designing and implementing regenerative human habitat, for a fraction of the cost of a conventional environmental degree. We’ve added an online introduction course, interactive student forum, and countless other unique features to create an information-dense and unparalleled learning experience. The 12 or 13 days of instruction are offered in several formats: (i) as a 2 week-long intensive, or (ii) split up over 4 extra long weekends.

Based on over 20 years of combined engineering, farming, and permaculture consulting design experience, we’ve developed & packaged three incredible tools into a BRAND NEW land design program called The Adaptive Habitat Program. There is a free self-study version of the program as well as a paid version, where Rob Avis & Takota Coen guide you through the design of your property. However, if you have DIY drive and motivation and if you’re clear that what you want isn’t a consultant, but the process and tools to bring your dream to life, The free Self-Study Program gives you nearly everything that we provide in our Guided & Guaranteed Program… just no personalized hand-holding.
We’ve partnered with the fine folks at Small Farm Academy to bring you a full suite of course offerings in the realm of passive solar greenhouse design. All of these offerings are delivered online. Please note that the prices below are in US dollars.
