Something to ponder:

Merritt College is proud to be one of the first community colleges in the nation to offer a certificate in Permaculture Design. Our two-year program is able to provide its students with a firm understanding of sustainable design principles, while our 7.5 acre campus gives students the space to put those principles into practice.

Two semesters of Permaculture Design courses make up the core of the curriculum.

Courses meet once a week, and the half lecture and half practical format allows students ample time for hands-on experience in organic farming, natural building and water harvesting techniques.

Campus Features

•Fruit Orchard
•Mushroom Cultivation Area
•Terraced garden beds
•5000 sq. ft. of Greenhouses
•Restored Oak Woodlands
•Outdoor Kitchen Area
•Herb Gardens
•Salvia Collection


To complete the certificate students can choose from a wide array of courses offered by the Landscape Horticulture department to follow their particular interests in the field of sustainable design. These include Natural Building, Mushroom Cultivation, Regenerative Design and many others.
