Deepen Your Understanding and Practical Application of the Science, Systems, Skills, and Spirit of Earth Healing.
Our new 6 month Advanced Permaculture course will give you the experience and confidence to plan, design, and begin regeneratively managing medium to large scale land systems. Bring your vision of resilient land and upon completion you will have designed a complete master permaculture plan that you can begin implementing right away to heal damaged ecosystems and sequester carbon on your ranch, retreat center, urban farm, homestead, or family farm!
🌱 Why? 🌱
Regenerative farmers are the new climate champions. To prevent global catastrophe, we need to both stop emitting carbon and draw it down from the atmosphere. The best way to do that is by regenerating living systems, using trees and plants to change that carbon into wood and food and humus and soil. Regenerative agriculture is gaining prominence as a climate solution, but we need people trained and prepared to implement it. This is what our programs teach!
Resilient Land Design: a 6 month Advanced Permaculture Training
In EAT’s new Resilient Land Design online course, we will learn Ecology and citizen science; soil; water; perennial and no-till systems; food forests; agroforestry and sustainable forest management; rangeland management and how to integrate animals. You’ll find a mix of theory, practical tools you can implement at home, readings, discussions and community connections.
This course is designed for students who have already completed a Permaculture Design Certificate course. A PDC is a prerequisite.
How the 6 Month Resilient Land Design Training Works:
Each month of the program, you’ll go through another module that introduces a key element of resilience. You’ll have three live classes each month, as well as supplementary readings, videos and other resources, and hands-on assignments. During the fourth week, you’ll meet with other students in your affinity group to build community and networks of support.
Throughout the course, you’ll be working on a permaculture design or land management plan for a site of your choice. The modules will deepen your understanding of each aspect of regenerative design, from site assessment and mapping through plans for food forests or grazing regimens. You’ll build your design, topic by topic, until at the end you have a complete plan for resilience. There will be time for personal interaction and feedback from your teachers.
🌱 Course Calendar:
Course runs March 31st-September 8th 2021.
