Permaculture Design Certificate 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 2019

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.

Tending our Inner Garden – Plant Intelligence, Microbiome and Fermentation for Sustainable Health

August 3-10, 2019

Sulzberg, Bayern, Germany

Permaculture course with Starhawk, Susanne Fischer-Rizzi and Matias Gonzalez Iwanow

Through a culinary journey we will discover how a dish reflects our ecosystem and how the principles of permaculture can be applied in the kitchen. We will walk through the traditions and influences of different countries and cultures and discover their knowledge and vision that make up the fermentation cosmos.

“We will explore the challenges of our time, such as resistance to bacteria, chronic diseases (cancer, autoimmune diseases, leaky gut, etc.), environmental toxins, food pollution, and nutritional strategies as keys to our health.”



Earth Activism & Social Permaculture

September 4-11, 2019

Granada, Spain

Bringing together the energetic forces of Starhawk, Alfred Decker and two pioneering permaculture projects, La Bolina and La Loma Viva, this special gathering will take us on a journey of transformation – regenerating inner and outer landscapes to manifest a new earth paradigm.

Earth Spirit – Earth Justice | 3-day Workshop + Spiral Dance

September 13-15, 2019

Beauraing, Belgium

STARHAWK offers an international training at an inspiring natural and historical site in Beauraing at the crossroads of human permaculture, activism ecological and deep ecology .

In these difficult times, we are witnessing the spiral of the collapse of nature and culture, and we may be concerned that our intentions and actions will not be enough to put an end to this massive destruction. Justice seems to be one of the foundations of a prosperous and sustainable world, but how to put it in place at all levels?

To implement the huge changes needed in our economy, our energy and technology systems, we need tools and allies. Ecological principles and values ​​can help us create diverse and resilient citizen movements. The tools of permacultural analysis and design can help us put in place more effective strategies.

The different community rituals and spiritual practices allow us to turn our helplessness, sorrow and anger into creativity, to mourn what we risk losing or have already lost, and to regain our commitment and new energies.
