Introducing: The Permaculture Design Certification Course with Advanced Training in Social, Emotional, and Cultural Transformation (by the Permaculture Women's Guild)

I am honoured to be part of a global community of mothers, sisters, healers, activists, gardeners, problem solvers, and eco-feminists, 40 of whom have co-crafted an accessible, comprehensive online permaculture course which is now open!

The teachers of this course hail from 13 countries around the world and are offering a course that goes far beyond the standard 72-hour PDC.  We’re training a new generation of permaculture designers with the skills they need to not only design landscapes and create closed-loop homestead systems, but also to manifest personal, cultural and ecological abundance.

The course was developed by women and enrolment is open for all genders.

How exactly am I involved?

I was selected to prepare a module focusing on Reimagining Economic Systems. In this module, you will start to apply permaculture wisdom to the topic of economics. We will explore case studies of community currencies and the degrowth movement to help you bring more abundance into your life and the lives of those around you. If you'd like a little sneak peak into that, please read my recent blog post published on Medium's Permaculture Women Magazine.

Designed to Support Women's Permaculture Livelihoods

This course was developed by ecofeminist author and activist Heather Jo Flores in an attempt to lift up women's voices in the permaculture field and make livelihoods in permaculture more accessible to women. 

By signing up through the links on this page, you are helping to ensure that I am paid fairly for the time that I invested in my module. Your will also get 3 hours of one-to-one design review time with me either in person (if you are located in the Kelowna, BC area) or via Skype/e-mail.


How Much?

This course is currently offered on a sliding scale of €600-800 Euros or  $925-$1230 CAD. Considering that you get two certificates for the price of one (i.e. a regular PDC plus an Advanced Certificate in Social Systems Design), this is a steal!

I am also offering a scholarship option where if two friends sign up together (having contacted me head of time) I can offer one of them 99% off the course. Please note that I only have one scholarship position left and am prioritizing low income women or single parents who would otherwise not be able to afford the course! Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions.
