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, Certificated Permaculture Designer, Educator & Business Management Consultant, for this eight-week online course that will help answer these questions. 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.
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.
