To share our world-changing answer to the question everybody’s asking us…

We’re offering the first session of our Permaculture Design Certificate in six provocative videos… for a price that’s practically pocket-change!

Hey there, Rob and Michelle here!

You know, we’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve been asked “So – what is permaculture, exactly?” It’s usually the first question in a lively conversation that starts with the social and environmental mess we’re facing, and ends with the affirmation that yes, there is a way that we can meet our needs while not only preserving, but enhancing eco-system health!

But up to now, you would need to invest in our 72 hour Permaculture Design Certificate to get the full, world-changing answer. Why? Because the full answer involves a fundamental shift in your understanding of how life, the eco-system, and the planet function…and that’s not something we can give in a brief convo!

But this information needs to be available to the world, at a price anybody can afford!

So we’ve set up a low-cost, online Primer, giving you the quick and earthy lowdown.

And about that purchase price, you’re asking…we said something about pocket change?

Yup! To keep this information as accessible as possible, we’re offering this Permaculture Primer at two levels:


  • Thirty days access to the online video Permaculture Primer (6 videos /3.5 hours)
  • A downloadable 60-page note pack explaining all of the key concepts in detail – that you can keep forever

We have never offered any portion of our PDC training for these prices – ever!

Whichever level you choose, you’ll get information that will challenge your assumptions about everything from compost to cultural values…without exaggeration, information that will start you on a journey to change your world.

This first-time-ever program is your best way to get a taste of the potential that permaculture offers for your garden, your community, and our planet….your best way to determine whether our world-class Permaculture Design Certificate is the one for you…and your best way to have a head start on the full program!

If you’ve ever wondered what the big deal is about permaculture – or if you have enough of an idea to want to learn more – or if you’re looking for a way to do good for the planet while you build a successful life for yourself – you’ll never have a better opportunity to get your questions answered.
