Utilizing the intensive Whole Systems Research Farm permaculture site in Vermont's Mad River Valley, our design studio resources, and a team of leading facilitators, Whole Systems Design presents a permaculture design certification course to be held July 31st to August 12th, 2011 at the Whole Systems Design Studio and Research Farm site.

This course offers an unparalleled opportunity to gain hands-on hard skills immersed within one of North America's most diverse and intensive permaculture research sites.  Participants will engage with high-performance home and community resource systems that will be more resilient in the face of problems posed by peak oil, climate change, environmental toxicity, and the inability of existing economic and social systems to deal with such challenges.   

This standard certificate curriculum goes beyond the typical Designer's Certification Course by utilizing the background of skills-based trainings offered in Whole Systems Skills, and is filled with practice-based, learning-by-doing experiences, not only concept and information-based study.  Students in this course will acquire basic post-peak oil resiliency literacy including: how to plant a tree, fell a tree, process firewood, perform earthworks, plumb waterworks, and innumerable other hard skills.  Unlike many permaculture course, we will actually be practicing these techniques on the farm throughout the course.

Our current team of instructors includes Keith Morris, Lisa DePiano, Jonathan Bates, Ben Falk, Cornelius Murphy, John Todd, and Liz Falk.  Visit the website for an updates list, more information, to register, and to download the flyer.
