COURSE FEE                                     

We want you to take this course. 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. You won't find an in-person Permaculture Design Course of this caliber with very experienced instructors at this price anywhere else for such a reasonable fee.

Because we want as many people as possible to take this course, we have lowered the price for this course to about $250 a month, with discounts for registering early, couples, paying cash. Look for discounts at the bottom of the registration form. 

 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.

WeTheTrees provides a professional video, strategy guide, and a demo campaign to get you crowd-fundraising quickly and effectively. We have had students raise more money than they needed for the course fee by asking friends and family for a $3-$5 donation on the crowd funder We the Trees.  

"A huge thank you to teacher Cathe' Fish for investing her heart in this course and sharing her wisdom. Never a dull moment, this course was jam packed with material and hands on experience, and takes place on a living, breathing permaculture farm complete with food forest. Cathe' is a high energy, motivational teacher who goes above and beyond simply teaching agricultural systems, to bring us social design principles applicable to every aspect of life. These are principles I will use every single day for the rest of my life, as they have become part of my mindset.”  T. F.



"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
