Education

Permaculture Design Certificate

Permaculture offers a positive response to the uncertainties of the future, using existing natural patterns to create landscapes, systems and communities.

Problem & Solution

Doom and instability are easy to come by, and in today’s world we face a crisis of rapidly changing social, economic, and ecological conditions. It’s easy to get overwhelmed trying to solve the challenges of our times. How can we meet our needs, without destroying the resources and conditions necessary for our survival?

Permaculture is an ethics-based design system that teaches us how to create regenerative, living systems, integrating aspects from soil, water and climate to social and material resources. The result? Adaptive systems designed to provide long-term stability by harnessing ecological and human capital.

buffer impacts of climate, water and energy instability

reduce vulnerability to unpredictable events

create enduring safeguards for energy, food and livelihood

As an experienced facilitator, practitioner and trainer, I have taught, lived and breathed permaculture at sites around the world, bringing the highest-quality information in regenerative living to my students.

Through All Points Land Design, I collaborate and work with other instructors to provide the best educational experience possible.
