Location: Sebastopol, CA.

Taught by Starhawk, Charles Williams and many guest teachers.


Create a meaningful livelihood restoring land and revitalizing community!

Our new long-term program is designed to give you the skills, experience and confidence to run a farm, ranch, retreat center or urban farm in ways that heal damaged ecosystems and sequester carbon.

Why?  We are beyond the tipping point for climate change, and to prevent global catastrophe we need to pull carbon out of the atmosphere.  The best way to do that is by regenerating living systems, using trees and plants to change that carbon into wood and food and humus.  Farmers are the new earth healers!

The opportunity—Half the farmland in North America is due to change hands in the next two decades as farmers age out.  It’s vital we get that land into the hands of those who know how to manage it in ways that contribute to global healing.  We need trained people—and you need to be able to make a thriving living for yourselves and your families.

The Program—We’ve designed a flexible program that should take approximately two years—less if you already have extensive experience.  It’s based around two ten-day intensives, short internships, a longer-term apprenticeship and many shorter courses, all guided by your personal mentor who will help you tailor the program to your own goals and needs.

Are you starting out in life, looking for meaningful work that can provide a livelihood for you and your family?  Are you seeking to change careers? Are you distressed about climate change and social breakdown, and want to make a positive contribution to the world?  Do you love nature and enjoy being outdoors?

This program is for you!

The cost:Each intensive costs sliding scale $1600-$1800 which includes food and camping sites or lodging.  We hope to provide work trade opportunities and Diversity Scholarships.

The basic mentorship and program fees are $150 a month.  Apprenticeships and internships will be by arrangement. We will work with you to make the program accessible.

Mother Earth wants you on her team! 


Permaculture Design Certificate Course
Shawnigan Lake, British Columbia, Canada

June 28th – July 14th, 2019: two-week intensive residential course
Location: O.U.R. Ecovillage, Shawnigan Lake, British Columbia, Canada

Taught by Starhawk, Charles Williams, and many fine teachers from the ecovillage

This residential PDC course is held concurrently with the OUR Little Permies Camp, a homeschool, unschool, educational immersion program for kids that runs alongside the PDC and welcomes entire families to learn together! O.U.R. Ecovillage is an incredible model demonstration sustainable village community rooted in social, ecological, and economic well being; Earth Activist Training has been bringing our PDC course to this location for years. (And U.S. residents save a lot with the Canadaian currency exchange!) For all details, questions, and registration information, please visit the O.U.R. Ecovillage Course page. (Please note, O.U.R. Ecovillage will handle all aspects on this course, so please contact them directly with your questions.)

This PDC is actually the first half of the International “Ecovillage and Sustainable Communities Design Certificate” (the United Nations ratified global curriculum for ecological community design). The second half of the course is a straight transfer for anyone who has been part of an Earth Activist Training/PDC. For details on the full 5-week course, please visit The Ecovillage Design Education Programme.

July 22-28th, 2019
Applewood Permaculture Centre, UK 
Join  Starhawk, Jon Young, Looby Macnamara and Maddy Harland for this nurturing experience to discover tools for positive cultural evolution. This is an exciting opportunity to learn and connect with the co-founders and collaborators of the Cultural Emergence project and to be part of the global activation and development of Cultural Emergence.
This module of the Cultural Emergence toolkit gives us the opportunity to deeply connect with ourselves, each other and the more than human world. It is an experiential journey to finding peace and empowerment within ourselves. We can carry these tools forward to emerge a peaceful culture in our own lives. 

In our two-week Permaculture Design Course, we gather together to explore an internationally-recognized permaculture design certificate (PDC) curriculum with a grounding in spirit and a focus on organizing and activism.

Learn how it is possible to design human systems that mimic natural systems, using a minimum of energy and resources and creating real abundance and social justice. We will cover principles and practices for how to read the landscape, how to heal soil and cleanse water, design integrated systems, harvest water, drought-proof land, build soil, sequester carbon, make compost, compost tea, and biochar, and how to bioremediate toxins. Explore the solutions to climate change, and the strategies and organizing tools that can put them in place.
