In our two-week Permaculture Design Course, we gather together to explore an internationally-recognized permaculture design certificate (PDC) curriculum with a grounding in spirit and a focus on organizing and activism.

Learn how it is possible to design human systems that mimic natural systems, using a minimum of energy and resources and creating real abundance and social justice. We will cover principles and practices for how to read the landscape, how to heal soil and cleanse water, design integrated systems, harvest water, drought-proof land, build soil, sequester carbon, make compost, compost tea, and biochar, and how to bioremediate toxins. Explore the solutions to climate change, and the strategies and organizing tools that can put them in place.

Tending our Inner Garden – Plant Intelligence, Microbiome and Fermentation for Sustainable Health

August 3-10, 2019

Sulzberg, Bayern, Germany

Permaculture course with Starhawk, Susanne Fischer-Rizzi and Matias Gonzalez Iwanow

Through a culinary journey we will discover how a dish reflects our ecosystem and how the principles of permaculture can be applied in the kitchen. We will walk through the traditions and influences of different countries and cultures and discover their knowledge and vision that make up the fermentation cosmos.

“We will explore the challenges of our time, such as resistance to bacteria, chronic diseases (cancer, autoimmune diseases, leaky gut, etc.), environmental toxins, food pollution, and nutritional strategies as keys to our health.”

Earth Spirit – Earth Justice | 3-day Workshop + Spiral Dance

September 13-15, 2019

Beauraing, Belgium

STARHAWK offers an international training at an inspiring natural and historical site in Beauraing at the crossroads of human permaculture, activism ecological and deep ecology .

In these difficult times, we are witnessing the spiral of the collapse of nature and culture, and we may be concerned that our intentions and actions will not be enough to put an end to this massive destruction. Justice seems to be one of the foundations of a prosperous and sustainable world, but how to put it in place at all levels?

To implement the huge changes needed in our economy, our energy and technology systems, we need tools and allies. Ecological principles and values ​​can help us create diverse and resilient citizen movements. The tools of permacultural analysis and design can help us put in place more effective strategies.

The different community rituals and spiritual practices allow us to turn our helplessness, sorrow and anger into creativity, to mourn what we risk losing or have already lost, and to regain our commitment and new energies.

WINTER 2019-2020

Led by Starhawk, Charles Williams and friends.

Dates: January 5 – January 19, 2020: two-week intensive residential course

Who is this training for?

We firmly believe that everyone can benefit from learning the tools and insights of permaculture to apply toward the broad goal of earth regeneration.
