Quail Springs Permaculture Design Course

Immerse yourself in permaculture in action with this 14-day learning journey! Share in the joy of community learning together and changing the world. Take home the ability to design and apply natural principles to create stable and resilient systems that provide food, water, shelter and energy needs while regenerating ecology, community and economy. The Quail Springs Permaculture Design Course (PDC) includes the 72-hr Permaculture Certification through Permaculture Research Institute.

Permaculture is a conscious integrated design system based on ecology and sustainability principles to create resource efficient and productive human environments and reduce our footprint on the earth. Permaculture provides a framework for consciously designed landscapes that mimic the patterns and relationships found in nature that provide diversity, stability, and resilience. These systems yield an abundance of shelter, water, energy, and food for the provision of local needs.

International Permaculture Teacher's Training - Germany

with Warren Brush and Elke Loepthien, in cooperation with the German Permakultur Akademie

What would Permaculture be without its teachers – those people that are able to pass on this incredibly diverse and rich phenomenon, that is so hard to put into words and nevertheless has touched and transformed thousands and thousands of people worldwide?  It is the teachers that make permaculture accessible and allow the spark to move on to touch more people’s lives, in the workshops and trainings that they are running.

Permaculture gifts us with enormous power to change our existence into a healthier and earth friendlier life, no matter where you are at. It lives and grows through the many people who do not only keep alive and protect this precious treasure, but who also dare to pass it onto others.
