In-Person Permaculture Design Certificate Course | Cazadero, CA

January 7 - January 21

$1500 – $3200

Live, In-Person Permaculture Design Course

Taught by Starhawk and Charles Williams 

Earth Activist Training’s Permaculture Design Certificate course (PDC) is our longest running and most requested course– we’ve been teaching it for 20 years. This is our foundational permaculture course where your learning about resilient land management and climate adaptation begins.

In this 2-week residential on-site course, we will explore an internationally recognized permaculture curriculum with a grounding in spirit and a focus on organizing and activism. Learn how to work with nature to heal land and water as we create real abundance and advocate for social justice. Each day begins with ritual and personal resilience tools. Mornings focus on theory, information, and examples of regenerative design. In the afternoon we put theory into practice with hands on activities. Evenings are interactive times to go deeper into social permaculture and global issues.


  • This two week intensive is an immersive permaculture experience.
  • Spend two weeks in a stunningly beautiful natural environment, eating great food and learning a lot!
  • Expect to work hard, but also to have lots of fun, meet great people on a similar journey to yours, and create lasting friendships.
  • While our hands-on projects involve physical work, we plan them to accommodate many levels of physical ability.  We welcome many sorts of diversity, including age and physical capacity.  (Contact support@earthactivisttraining.org if you have questions.)
  • Each day combines earth centered spiritual practice, classroom theory, practical hands on experience, and time to integrate, socialize and relax.
  • The two weeks culminate with the creation of an integrated permaculture design.
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be invited to join Earth Activists Training’s private community and gain access to a wealth of online resources.
  • Expect to have your assumptions challenged, your horizons broadened, and your connection to nature deepened.


Are you concerned about the environment and want practical solutions?  Are you an activist, organizer, policy maker, advocate?

Are you a farmer, homesteader, land manager, gardener, or want to be?  Whether you have many acres, a suburban backyard or an urban balcony, learn how to generate abundance where you are.

Are you worried about fire, flood, drought, and the impacts of natural disasters?  Learn how to design resilient systems that can mitigate some of the effects of climate-caused disasters.

Are you a teacher, parent, educator, caregiver, mental health professional wanting to bring nature education into your work?

Are you a young person looking for a livelihood where you can make a difference?  Or at turning point in your life, wondering what the next phase should be?

We firmly believe that everyone can benefit from learning how to apply  the tools and insights of permaculture toward the broad goal of earth regeneration. Permaculture has solutions not just for landscapes and agricultural systems, but also for social design, public policy, and survival strategies for these challenging times.
