Drawing on the wisdom of ecological systems and indigenous knowledge, permaculture offers us a vision, design approach, and tools to create a world of health and abundance. Increased inclusion and support of leadership and perspective from women of diverse backgrounds is vital to this vision.

In this unique and innovative program, we explore diversity and leadership while building our confidence. We practice teaching permaculture for various formats, from introductory workshops, special topics, and short courses, to the core permaculture design certificate (PDC) course.

Permaculture Design Certificate Course
Western Sonoma County, CA

January 6th – 20th, 2019: two-week intensive residential course
Work-Trade positions and Diversity Scholarships available
Location: Black Mountain Preserve and Golden Rabbit Ranch, Western Sonoma County, CA

Taught by Starhawk with Pandora Thomas, Charles Williams, and guest lecturers

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 to design human systems that mimic natural systems, using a minimum of energy and resources and creating real abundance and social justice. Earth Activist Training is unique in weaving social permaculture aspects throughout our course: learn how to organize our human communities and groups, how to resolve conflicts, make decisions, work together effectively, and sustain our spirits. Together we create a community contained by daily ceremony and interactive ritual throughout the course.

We teach interactively, not just through classroom presentation, lecture and discussion, but through games, songs, ceremony, guided visualizations, design practice, field trips, and a variety of practical, hands-on, outdoor projects.
