2.0 COURSE COMPLETE… Stay tuned for next step programming for Regenerative Business Design!!

Design and launch a thriving, mission-based business built upon a regenerative/ecological design framework.

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! Regenerative Business Design 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 and hurdles?

Join Patty Love, Earth Activist Training PDC Graduate and Co-teacher and Certified Permaculture Teacher, for this eight-week online course that will help answer this question. In this course, Patty weaves together her decade of permaculture study and practice with her formal education in Business and 20 years of successful self-employment.

Your full participation in this course, which includes completion of homework between classes and utilization of the tools offered, will produce an actionable, triple bottom line business plan that will be ready for you to launch. 

What Is Regenerative Business Design?

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 get starting creating a viable business and business plan.️ And with the unknown journey through the COVID-19 Pandemic, a shaken economy, and a continually changing climate, how we spend our time and energy is more important than ever.
