Announcing: The Transformative Adventures Permaculture Design Certificate Course.

Winter 2020-2021 December – March

Monday/Wednesday evenings, 6-9 PM, EST.

Want to become a leader in building a more just and sustainable society? Want to make a real career doing it?

What we need is a DIY Green New Deal, one that will create an army of professional change-makers to build a better world, and we can’t wait for politicians or “thought leaders” to make it for us. We need to get to work now!

Bill Mollison, Founder of Permaculture

We’ve designed this special one-time course to help launch a new Cooperative organization dedicated to supporting that army of change-makers. By joining this PDC, you’ll be supporting us while we support you.

This is the only PDC packaged with multiple plug-and-play proven business plans, curricula, marketing materials, support packages, online videos, ready to take and adapt to your own community, and support on how to market and be successful:

  • Create your own community agroforestry nursery.
  • Lead workshops in regenerative finance and life design that will grow wealth and build community
  • Teach home energy efficiency updates that will actually PAY people to fight climate change.
  • Regenerative adulting workshops.
  • Host regenerative community organizing boot camps.
  • Transformative Landscaping workshops including, basic natural gardening, forest gardening, guild building, polycultures, water management, permaculture design, path and bed design, etc.
  • Become a paid consultant helping landscape managers get recognition through our Transformative Landscapes Initiative.

And we’ll teach you to use these “adventures” to build community and stack income streams to create right livelihood for the long term. We’ll cover dozens of Permaculture livelihoods and successful models, along with an honest evaluation to help you avoid mistakes.


December: Program begins, open enrollment, orientation, discussion, self-exploration.
