We also offer courses and products related to designing low-energy greenhouses, through our partners at Small Farm Academy, as well we have authored a book (and a bunch of associated resources) about home-scale rainwater harvesting.


If you’ve completed a permaculture course (or done your own advanced study) and are looking for some support and hand-holding while you design the property of your dreams, consider our Adpative Habitat Program, a 12-week online (live) group guided session, which is also occasionally offered in-person. Note that the Self-Study version of this program is completely free.


With over 72 hours of classroom and hands-on instruction, the Permaculture Design Certificate (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, in multiple locations across Western Canada. Visit our Main PDC Listing Page for detailed info.


If you live in the Calgary area you may be looking for more in-depth information or might consider attending one of our weekend workshops, open yards or private tours! We’re always happy to step aside to answer questions. Check out our Full Course Listing Page or sign up for Our Newsletter to find out what we have scheduled.


Finally, if you need intensive one-on-one time to answer complex or specific technical questions or to develop a comprehensive strategy for your property consider the services provided through our unique and leading edge property design and management company, Adaptive Habitat.  If you are curious about our services you can schedule a complimentary phone conversation and/or book hourly virtual consultancy.
