Linnaea Farm’s Permaculture Design Certificate course takes place on the gorgeous and wild Cortes Island, a jewel in the Coast Salish Sea. Completing this immersive, hands-on course gives you a Permaculture Institue of North America (PINA) Certificate, and grounds participants in the principles and ethics of Permaculture design. With a theme of creating resilient systems in the face of climate chaos, this course will cover: water systems, food forest design, disaster preparedness, integrated livestock, urban and rural habitats, and so much more. With field trips, guest instructors, multi-media lectures and actual design work ~ this is experiential learning at it’s best!
