Our trainings change lives, and open up new career paths for students like these:

Malik Coburn:

“Before the privilege of attending my first EAT course in March 2017, I had been trapped in the hole of working job-to-job. In June 2017, I took the Permaculture Design Course with Starhawk & Charles Williams. I am currently facilitating a project based environmental science curriculum in Gary, IN – a town that sits in the shadows of Chicago, IL as a poverty-ridden, violent, and food deserted area. The course helped me in how it provided me with so many resources, with the tools to create partnerships and therapeutic methods to bring beauty to ourselves and our surroundings.”

Becky Ellis:

“Earth Activist Training completely changed my world. It brought together three strands in my life that had not been connected too closely until my experience at the PDC: Earth-based spirituality, the growing of food, and activism. I have been inspired to live my life in vastly different ways since attending the PDC in 2010. I have created a children’s gardening program, done permaculture education, built an amazing community of permaculture-ended people, created an arts and eco festival and taken a leadership role in pushing for regenerative urban agriculture in my city of London (Ontario) and Toronto.”

“I put out the blog and podcast Permaculture for the People which focuses on anti/post capitalism and permaculture. I am completing my PhD in Geography at Western University and my research focuses on the relationship between people and urban bees.  Through EAT I learned that, to paraphrase Arundhati Roy, another world is not only possible but is on her way!”
