COURSE FEE

We know that many people who care for the Earth would like to take this course.   We have worked hard to lower the price of this course. In 2009, this Permaculture Design Course class was $1450. In Fall 2011, we lowered the course fee to $1350. What a bargain for a course of this caliber!  Because we want as many people as possible to take this course, we have further lowered the price for this course to $1100, with discounts for registering early. Look for discounts at the bottom of the registration form and on Practical Permaculture Facebook.

How are we keeping the cost so low?  We are holding this course only on  weekends to help people who work during the week. And we are not serving meals. You must bring your own food: lunch and snacks. Free camping is available.

Note: We will contact you if you request work trade and it is available.

For help raising funds for the course, check out  the permaculture fundraiser  www.wethetrees.com -it really works. We have had students raise more money   than they needed for course fees by asking friends and family for a $3 -$5 donation.   


"I have evaluated classroom teachers at all levels for many years.
Cathe' is a master teacher with great organization and management.
It is hard for me to watch/ be part of lousy teaching. 
So this class has been a joy for me to participate in."
	                       T.W. previous school administrator and consultant          
"What permaculturists are doing is the most important activity 
that any group is doing on the planet.
We don't know what details of a truly sustainable future are going to be like, but we need options,
we need people experimenting in all kinds of ways
and permaculturists are one of the critical gangs that are doing that." Dr David Suzuki geneticist, broadcaster and international environmental advocate
