Fall 2022 Mid-Atlantic Permaculture Design Course

September 2 - November 14

Join us at this Fall’s Permaculture Design Course!

The Shenandoah Permaculture Institute’s Permaculture Design Course is an introductory 80-hour course taught in-person over the 4 weekends. The course uses a mix of hands-on skill sessions, classroom lectures, farm tours, collaboration, and design presentations to lay the foundation for a holistic-design approach.

We’ve even got on-site camping and housing available! You’ll get your hands dirty and your wheels turning as we walk through the Permaculture Design curriculum from observation to execution.

The course will be taught over 4 weekends, with one
​3 day weekend, for a total of 9 days:
September 2, 3, 4
September 24, 25
October 8, 9
November 12, 13

This course will be held in the greater Shenandoah Valley area, based out of 1 Tribe Farm in Mt. Sidney, VA.
We will also be traveling quite a bit for field trips on course weekends.

Here’s what one of our students from last Fall has to say: “SPI’s PDC empowered me through experiential learning to work within an ethical, systems framework to creatively foster a sustainable ecological community. Though I learned valuable strategies, I more importantly gained a critical method for thinking and cultivating community.”

So join us! Reach out with any questions, and we’ll see you in September!
