We are thrilled to announce a return to in-person courses in January 2022!
Register here to secure your spot– spaces are limited. 

Earth Activist Training’s Permaculture Design Certificate Course (PDC) is our longest running course– we’ve been teaching it for over 20 years. It’s a baseline course where all learning about resilient land management begins. We are thrilled to be back in-person this winter to offer our most requested and important learning opportunity.

The PDC is an internationally recognized course certified by the Permaculture Institute of North America (PINA). To meet their standards, we cover the 72-hour curriculum required for certification.
