From June 26th to July 12th, 2020 join us for a 72-hour PDC (Permaculture Design Certificate) over 17 days & evenings packed with learning from various instructors who are specialists in their fields.

Study “Lawful Permaculture” at Our Ecovillage!

OUR Ecovillage is proud to host this two-week permaculture design certificate course with a focus on organizing and activism which are grounded in concepts of earth-based spirituality. Learn how to heal soil and cleanse water, how to design human systems that mimic natural systems using a minimum of energy and resources, and how to create real abundance so that YOU can be a changemaker in environmental/social justice.

Explore the strategies and organizing tools we need to make our visions real, as well as the daily practice, magic, and processes that sustain our spirits. Participatory, hands-on teaching with lots of projects, games, guest teachers and regulatory authorities, and field trips to other important precedent-setting permaculture projects make up this intensive one-of-a-kind curriculum in ecological design.

This course is unique from almost all others in North America as you are stepping into OUR ECOVILLAGE: a 25-acre “Sustainable Living Demonstration Site and Education Centre” and one of the most built out permaculture projects.

For 19 years OUR Ecovillage has been working towards “Lawful Permaculture”; having every innovative design and building project that we have created ALSO be fully zoned/permitted/approved/etc by regulatory officials. Through partnering with all 3 levels of government, business/corporate sponsors, academia, and the grassroots of the wider community projects/organizations, OUR Ecovillage has managed to bring together a range of professionals, permaculture teachers, regulatory folks, and technical stakeholders to train others in the next stages of how to make permaculture projects fully legal.


The 2-Week Permaculture Design Course is $1230 CAD.
