Simply put, permaculture is a holistic approach to landscape design and human culture.Join us September 24th October 8th for Linnaea Farm’s Permaculture Design Course, featuring internationally renowned permaculture guru Rick Valley.Go home with a Permaculture Design certificate and a practical understanding of permaculture design principles and applications.Rick Valley is coming up from Oregon as head instructor—he taught the first permaculture design course at Linnaea Farm in the 1980’s, which also happened to be the first course EVER taught in Canada. He’s the go-to guy for experience in designing and implementing permaculture projects all through the Pacific Northwest.Whatever projects you’ve got on your plate—landscaping, home renovation, social landscapes, big dreams or little ones, this course makes your dreams reality. It’ll give you tools, principles and examples needed to assess any landscape of human habitation and immediately start transforming it into an efficient, sustainable, joyful and beautiful system you can be proud of.Specific time is set aside in the evenings for informal group gatherings to workshop each other’s projects, etc. This is invaluable as a catalyst to help you overcome obstacles that are preventing you from really mastering and stewarding the land, home or situation you find yourself responsible for.315 acre Linnaea Farm is nestled beside Gunflint Lake on gorgeous and wild Cortes Island. Experience the edge where human design meets wilderness, and perhaps you’ll even catch a glimpse of our resident wolves, bald eagles, beavers, deer, orca and humpback whales.Spots are filling up, so if you want to see the myriad ways in which permaculture will transform you, register here now!
