“My experience in the course was invaluable. I find myself with a new permaculture lens that I can put on at
will, and see the world around me in a way that I feel leads to making more conscious decisions and living
better in harmony with the earth.”
– Deborah F., Course Graduate
This course will combine critical design skills with leadership, nature connection, and most importantly an
urban focus, building and exceeding upon the internationally-recognized Permaculture Design Certification curriculum. Our programs offer by far the most complete curriculum of any similar course — with a huge focus on leadership, personal growth and community design as well as green business.
“This course was the BEST time I have had in the past 6 years” – Lana T, Graduate
You’ll learn how to create sustainable, thriving human systems, from green houses and organic gardens, to local micro-economies and communities, using sustainable design principles that are applicable to every human system, from businesses, communities, and cities to personal relationships.
“The experiences I have had and people I have met through Common Circle has been life changing. On these trips, a community is created and everyone’s individuality is honored, welcomed and celebrated as you work together each day to prepare meals, confront issues large and small and find out how each and every one of us can be the change that we wish to see in the world.”
– Marlee F, Course Graduate
Because of our unique focus on Urban and Suburban solutions, our courses are radically different from most other programs, teaching permaculture as a design science rooted in nature. With most of the world’s population in cities, we must meet people where they live with real sustainable solutions.
Starting by learning the lessons from nature with some of the world’s most renowned organic farming experts, we will then look at how to apply what we learned from the soil and the water to building sustainable, lasting institutions.
We hope you will be able to join us for this incredible, life-changing experiential course!
