Permaculture Design Certificate Course Fundraiser

Permaculture Design Certificate Course Fundraiser

This coming fall Urban Adamah is thrilled to offer a Permaculture Design Certificate Course taught by pedagogy-expert and local permaculture educator, and former UA Assistant Farm Manager, Rachel Economy. For one weekend a month for five months, join us on the farm to dive deep in the principles and practices of resilient ecological design and learn to create systems that foster earth care, people care, and fair share. Participants will leave this course certified, and with hands-on tools and training to implement design processes in their own ecosystems and communities.

To make this course possible we are reaching out to collaborate with you, our community. We are offering a portion of the tickets for this course in advance through this fundraiser. When you buy your ticket, you secure your spot in the course. In addition, you also help to guarantee that the course will happen, and underwrite the sliding scale that will make this course accessible to as many participants as possible. This is a unique and rare opportunity to dig in to permaculture on a thriving urban farm, meet and learn from Bay Area leaders and land, and create more accessible permaculture education locally. We invite your vital support.
