Are you ready to build a successful business that cares for the earth and people too?

In today’s changing world, our planet is calling for businesses to follow earth-based ethics, principles, and ecological design processes– also known as permaculture! 

The Regenerative Business Design Course will guide you through a step by step process to build a business that can sustain you financially while staying true to your core values. What do you need to know, consider, and plan for in order to launch a business that will have a high likelihood of success and a plan for handling failures, fumbles, and hurdles?

Join Patty Love, Certificated Permaculture Designer & Teacher and Business Management Consultant, for this eight-week course that will help answer these questions. In this course, Patty weaves together her decade plus of permaculture study and practice with her formal education in Business and more than 20 years of successful self-employment. 

Fully participating in this course, including completing homework between classes and utilizing the tools developed, will empower you to be significantly prepared to put your business plan into action. Students will receive an EAT issued Certificate of Completion which can be applied towards our Regenerative Land Management Diploma.

Here’s what our Regenerative Business Design graduates are saying!

“As a definitive creative type who has a million ideas but not necessarily the knowledge or the structure to put them into practice as income generators, I find myself doing a ton of volunteer work. The information provided is helping me to see a framework for shifting into a different mindset. The breakout groups have been very rewarding.” ~L.U., Earth Activist

“I really LOVE how the class is based on mindfulness, intention setting and regenerative practices for the business and the “owner.” I have actually taken a number of business courses (many years ago in college) and this ethos is more my personal style than the cold, corporate bleh of those large classrooms. The weekly zoom calls help me keep accountable for my work. I’m finding I don’t mind the breakout rooms – I was feeling nervous about them originally.” ~J.W., Earth Activist

“The comprehensive scope of the information is fantastic! I appreciate how the course is organized and presented.” ~ J.K., Earth Activist

🌎 A Message from your Teacher:

I designed this Training with the idea that… many people dream of starting their own business without even knowing if they have the personality to be an entrepreneur and without knowing how to create a viable business with a solid plan.️ And with the unknown journey through the COVID-19 Pandemic, a shaken economy, and a continually changing climate, how we spend our time, resources, and energy is more important than ever.
