This transformational 12-week program introduces five spheres of sustainability — Personal, Social, Ecological, Economic, and Worldview — and integrates classroom learning with an immersion experience in our 27-year-old intentional community.
Students earn two internationally recognized certificates: the Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC), which is the global standard in permaculture education; and the Ecovillage Design Education Certificate (EDE), a holistic sustainability standard anchored by Gaia Education and recognized by UNESCO; plus a free introductory course to Gaia Education’s online Design for Sustainability program.
