Here we are at this time of unprecedented change – and we recognize that every one of us is part of this new CALL TO ACTION !!
In this new offering, Starhawk, Charles Williams & OUR educators will be teaching:
- Permaculture Design has been recognized the world over as a solutionary potency for creating amazing transformation within our full life systems and the needed planetary/earth healing as well.
- Ecovillage Design is now also known the world over, by Governments to scientists, as a earth/life design ‘to re-invent the future’.
Starhawk and Earth Activist international have partnered with OUR ECOVILLAGE in an effort to bring both of these design frameworks forward in service of the efforts we all need to make as we move into our collective future.
What is the Introduction to Permaculture Course?
This informative course will give you all the basics of design, ethics, and principles of permaculture as you join us for the first 2 1/2 days of our Permaculture Design Certificate course.
Join us as we learn the basics in sustainable design with a group of like minded participants who are also on the journey of changing their way of thinking in the world and how they treat the earth.
In this introductory workshop OUR Ecovillage will focus on:
- Organizing, activating, and educating through their real on the ground permaculture projects.
- Teaching how we design human systems that mimic natural systems using a minimum of energy and resources and how to create real abundance and social/environmental justice.
- Exploring 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.

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.
