I'm looking for somewhere to study permaculture design in Hawaii. I looking to relocate there from Canada by getting a student visa, loan, and all that, so I'm looking for something like a full-time course of study. I can't seem to find anything like that in my google searches... Can anyone help by pointing me in the right direction? Thanks!
I live and work on a fully developed thirty acre permaculture farm in Hawaii. Lots of farms offer PDC and a all sorts of things but they are mostly affluent people with zero knowledge and a neat outdoor kitchen and a garden and maybe some chickens. Most of the courses Ive seen are over priced for what you get and youre not really learning much. A lot of the farms are alternative communities of people who just woo woo around all day talking about things they just learned themselves. www.waiholefresh.com . thats the O'ahu permaculture site Im at.

We're thinking about going to a place on the big island in a few months. Not to take a course but they are building and doing permaculture there, growing a portion of their food needs. I have to pay to be there and work too so it will be a bit expensive for me with 2 kids in tow but I'd like to do it anyhow. They said cob is not a good way to build there, don't know why exactly but I'm guessing it's going to be different than anything I've experienced so far in life!
